I live in Houston, PA. I grew up here and moved back here after my husband died. I am still trying to get on my feet, but I am doing it, verrrry slowly. I love to cook, and that's how I met my husband. My favorite cookbook is "How to Cook Everything" But I use "Better Homes and Gardens" quite often. Sorry, I am going by the hints list to fill this out! LOL! I have one very bad but very pretty little kitty named Echo, but who my husband had nicknamed "Satan"! LOL! I guess my pet peeve is people who mumble (I'm a customer service rep on the phone all day) If I had a month off work I'd read and eat potato chips, and probably wouldn't get out of the bed!
