I love to cook on my wood stove. I even chop my own wood. I live in the mountains with a wonderful man, 2 daughters, 1 step daughter, and 1 step son. One daughter has moved away to college---the others are teenagers at home. We have a lot of fun. We also live with 2 dogs, several cats, and a parrot. When I'm not cooking or chopping wood I work full time as an architect. I love my career, but cooking is my real creative outlet.
