I have lived for the past 25 yrs. in Ohio for the first 25 I lived in North Carolina. I work at a drug and alcohol rehab for women, I was the cook for 5 years but now I work midnights. My favorite cookbooks are the Taste of Home annual editions and any of the Southern Living cookbooks. I love to crochet in my spare time in the winter and I do counted cross-stitch in the summer.
