My what a difference a good stove makes!! When I was young, I LOVED to cook. Then I got married, got my first little house, and suddenly none of my dishes would turn out right! For years I simply thought I had lost my touch. Then, thankfully, I got a new stove. It had been my stove all the while! (Burning the bottom of my cookies, leaving inside still doughy, etc.) As for my "day" job, I am a law school graduate and stay at home Mom. I am currently awaiting my results from the Calfornia State Bar Exam. If I pass (fingers crossed), I will officially be an attorney. UPDATE: I am on a serious diet! Looking for great low low low cal recipes. All this cooking has lead to a 35 lb weight increase! I have already lost 7 and have 28 more to go.
