I live in the Dallas area with my man, our dogs and our cat. I have a job as an bookkeeper/office manager for a catering company (yum) and like just about everyone else here at 'Zaar, I love to cook! I also love hiking and backpacking, so I like to try and devise exciting and tasty meals that can be prepared in the backcountry. I'm always looking for new dishes to try, or ways to make old dishes new again. I have a big brick fire pit in the backyard that my man built, so I've been exploring ways to cook in it, over it, etc. I have a very food-oriented family. Many of us have food-related careers and we use any occasion as an excuse to eat and drink. I wouldn't have it any other way!
