WOHM who enjoys making some not so everyday food. I've always been a decent cook until I met the slow cooker. I discovered I couldn't improvise a meal with it even if my life depended on it. After religiously following crock pot recipes, I can now make edible items from it. I've spent time in France and learned all my my best cooking skills from a French friend. I also have my grandmother's gift of having a good eye and not need to use a measuring cup.
