I live in a small town in NW Iowa with my husband, 3 sons,1 dog, 1 goat, and currently 7 cats. All live outdoors except for the sons and husband, although that could change. I work as a junior/high school secretary at the local school and do some catering on the side. I love this site and cookbooks and Food Network. I have been trying to write a cookbook for about 5 years and don't know if I'll ever finish it.
