I live in Las Vegas now, but I am originally from Pennsylvania....Philly area. I really miss the good food from back there, because the food out here is awful. People stop making homey food the farther west you get or something. I am a housewife and mother of two. My husband and I love our new little additions to our family. My favorite cookbooks are little bits and pieces of everyone else's. I like to make recipes that people have been making for years in their family and start a tradition with mine.
