I live in a suburb in Northwest Ohio, I don't work outside the home anymore due to some health and personal reasons. I have been married over 30 years, very happily. I have an adult daughter and son, with two grandchildren. I enjoy gardening in my yard, and taking care of my grandchildren. My favorite cookbooks are the Amish cookbooks by Marcia Adams, and the cookbooks by Cook's Illustrated such as The Best Recipe. I was suddenly widowed on December 4, 2003. It is now almost April, 2005, and I still can hardly breathe, I feel as though my life stopped on that day also.
