I've lived in New York my entire life and I'm married to my hubby Brian for over 36 years. We have 3 grown children, our dogs and cats to fill our lives and our home. In the mundane world I work for a pharmaceutical company. The cooking fun starts once I get home (don't care to do fast foods) coming up with quick easy meals and making more involved recipes on the weekends. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes and flavors for my family. I could sit for hours just researching recipes and coming up with ideas. My other hobbies are decorative painting, making craft items, a bit of sewing, a bit of crocheting and finally taking the time to learn to knit.
