I live in South Texas. Today we have9 dogs, 7 cows, 1 horse, 26 chickens , 21 ducks & a bunch of cats. Numbers seem to increase daily. I Love: to cook & bake, read good cookbooks and animals ! I collect thimbles and cook books. I joined zaar to post my Nanny's recipes. She passed away in '05 and I thought zaar was a great way to share her recipes w/ my family. Everything I post of hers always gets a good review with us- if it has a bad review on zaar chances are it was not made correctly ! LOL !
