I am a transplant to Canada as of 1999, orginally from south central Pennsylvania - Pennsylvania Dutch country. I teach music in a private Montessori school in Ottawa, that capital of Canada. We live outside of the city in the woods with our three dogs. That's the newest pup in the picture. She is 18 months old. http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/230846/DCP_0357.JPG We have a lovely cottage on a lake tucked away from the big city. Give me the commute any day! I am a cookbook addict though I've bought less since Zaar has arrived on the horizon! My favorites have to be the Cook's Illustrated books - I really love the scientific aspect of food and how it all works!
