So, a bit about me: I love to eat, love to cook and am married to a chef (lucky me). I have recently recovered from Thyroid issues and adult-onset food allergies. My husband and I welcomed our first child into this world in July. I had a hard pregnancy and spent most of it on bedrest. I gained 65 pounds. I've decided to chronicle my weight loss through recipezaar and also include some baby food recipes as I come up with them. My Favorite Cookbook: Canning Recipes This is from Sharon123--my first zaar aquaintance. I prepared serveral of her "jar" recipes as Christmas gifts and they were such a hit. This is the cookbook that sold me on this site! We even used Sharon123's Viennese Beet Preserves at our wedding reception!
