Since I practically live on this website, my daughter thought it fitting for me to finally post a little about myself. I have so enjoyed getting to know little snip-its of the amazing cooks on this site, I feel I should join the masses and share a little about me :) I am recently retired and now have even more chances to explore new recipes and cook for my family. I have always believed in a home-cooked way of life for my family and fortunately have bestowed my joy of cooking onto my children. Although my DH is an extreme meat and potatoes kind of eater, I have managed to find opportunites here and there to explore the many facets of flavorful cooking. I have the privilege of having my oldest living just down the street with my beautiful, bright grandson, who I bring home with me after school everyday. My father is also down the road and LOVEs enjoying my treats at least once a week. The best, though, is when my daughter- who shares this hobby and love for food with me- comes to town and we spend hours planning, searching and preparing fun new recipes.
