My husband & I are both retired from health fields and I spend entirely too much time at the computer. I have four wonderfully married children and by March will have 8 grandchildren--only two of which live here in town. Fortunately the others aren't extremely far away. Being raised in Central and South America by Scandinavian parents makes me at home with a wide range of foods and tastes--but not necessarily the great cook my mother was. The first utterance out of her mouth when one walked in the door was not "Hello" but, "Have you eaten yet?" I consult recipes quite often which are probably my favorite reading material. Also, I certainly want to steer clear of of the same meal for each day of the week that I understand my husband's mother practiced. Oh, dear! I enjoy sharing recipe finds with my daughters/d's-in-law.
