I'm a high school math teacher who loves to cook. But the funny thing is, you'd think being a math teacher I would be fantic about following recipes (exact measurements and stuff) but in reality I'm totally opposite. My husband says I can't follow a recipe at all. I'm always tweaking it to our taste and I rarely measure anything. I have 2 small children and I hope I can give them a love for food and cooking! I am enjoying the Zaar alot.
