I am a new mom (my little joy is almost 7 months old) who is discovering how much fun cooking can be. My goal for when I was on maternity leave was to learn to cook alot of new recipes, and recipezaar is helping me get that done. I live half way between Toronto, Canada and Detroit, MI. It's a great place to live because it is close to everything. 2 hours to Toronto, 1 hour to the US, 45 minutes to 2 different beaches on one of the great lakes.....very different from where I was from, Edmonton, Alberta. Most know it is the home of the famously huge West Edmonton Mall.
