I love food.com! It is so fascinating to sample the many recipes that people from all over the world submit. It is a happy place to spend some time. Making Italian food(especially lasagna) and all sorts of salads are a few of the things I enjoy making. Salmon is one of my favorites and I have collected a lot of new recipes to try on food.com. It has been fun to make a collection of different catergories of foods to try. I have a gluten sensitivity and enjoy trying new recipes that are gluten-free. I don't really have a favorite cookbook, but I do love collecting recipes of all different kinds. Dabbling in the art of making raw foods is a new area I have been experimenting in. I am thankful to have found this site under the original name of RecipeZaar. It helps me to be a better chef when I am able to borrow other recipes from my fellow friends on the Zaar. It is also a lot of fun to meet people from all over the world who are such great cooks! It is my goal to be a healthy individual and I have found many new recipes that help me on here. I also desire to honor the Lord Jesus, sharing his love with others. We have 8 children. I now home school 2 children. Six of our children have already graduated from our home school. Three of our children have graduated from college. We all enjoy cooking and/ or eating. Keep the great ideas and recipes coming!
