I used to design databases, but I gave that up to be a stay at home gardener/cook/quiltmaker. (Kid's are grown, so I had to come up with another excuse.) I love horses; what Kentuckian doesn't? I'm also really into Holidays; everyone teases me about this, as I've become obsessed with them to the point of even making curtains for just about every occasion. I've also been known to plant a bush or tree just so I'd have the perfect one to decorate. I love cookbooks that tell a story, and those that have comments about the recipes. The reviews in RecipeZarr are what got me hooked.
