I'm a 40-something happily married woman of seven years. I've been cooking since I was around six or seven years old. I've learned alot of my cooking "tricks" and recipes from an aunt (one of my dad's sisters -- there were a total of 12 kids in his family!) as well as from her late friend, Mrs. Reynolds who was a phenomenal cook and baker! Mrs. Reynolds' meatloaf recipe is a favorite of ours that I make on a regular basis. I've changed it up a bit from time to time by adding some bbq sauce which gives it a "tangy" taste. I believe when you take the time to cook something for your family, it has alot more meaning and alot healthier. Anyone can open a can, pour it into a pot and heat it up or pop it into a microwave. People say they don't have time to cook a meal for their family. Hogwash! If you have time to go out for drinks with friends, you certainly have time to make dinner for your family! Our favorite restaurant is Cheddar's in Florence, KY. The portions are generous but the prices are quite inexpensive; 1/2 rack of ribs is around $8 and they have one of my favorites: Monte Cristo! MMMmmm! We currently reside in the Northern suburban-countryside of Cincinnati, OH. My DH is originally from KY and grew up working on his dad's farm. We love the country and hope to one day purchase some land that has space for a large vegetable garden and some barnyard animals. We both enjoy travelling, spending time outdoors with our four-legged "kids" which we have two of, as well as relaxing with family and friends. We both enjoy cooking, baking, and grilling. I am a big fan of old fashioned farm, pioneer and comfort-food cooking. My husband is a meat-and-potatoes man -- nothing fancy. Just good, home-cooked-from-scratch meals.
