I live in Texas (obviously) and have my entire life. I teach preschool part-time, and I'm married with 3 children. Cooking is one of my favorite hobbies, as well as reading. I have been known to spend hours reading cookbooks actually, and I collect them, too. I like to put on music and sip wine while I cook. I find it very relaxing. My non-cook friends think that is weird(well, not the wine part but the cooking part)! I also do some small scale catering for my MIL's business ocasionally so I am always trying out new recipes. I have thousands of recipes, some in books, most on scraps of paper and note cards. I like that I can save them here (and reduce my clutter in the kitchen!), and keep them private until I can try them all out. Now that I know how to post, I will be doing more of that soon. I have enjoyed trying out new recipes and I hope that ya'll will enjoy mine as well!
