I am an elementary teacher (26 years!) in Austin, but my favorite reading materials aren't children's books, they are cookbooks/recipes! I am a single mom of two teenagers (actually, my DD just turned 24!), for whom I've always cooked great meals, which go eaten, but unrecognized for their greatness. :- ) So...I love to cook for others, and to have people ask for my recipes...which I am eager to share! I enjoy making easy recipes, but I especially love to take existing recipes and make them my own.
