I am originally from Johnstown, PA infamous for three floods. Met my husband online, married, and moved to Latrobe, PA. Latrobe is about a 45 minute drive from Johnstown. Arnold Palmer, Mr Rogers (Mr Rogers Neighborhood), and the now defunct Rolling Rock beer brewery, all originate from Latrobe. I have been told that the banana spilt originated here in Latrobe, PA, but that is debateable with a town in Ohio! I have one dog, and a blue heeler, no kids. Unfortunately, my beautiful German Shepard, Adrianne, had to be put to sleep on February 21, 2008. We have adopted Sheila, a Blue Heeler. I am a self taught cook, as I have learned to cook by trial and error. I have A TON of cookbooks, but all of the recipes I try are from this website.
