I have lived in the Midwest all my life. I married my husband in 1985, Best thing I have ever done besides having OUR 3 daughters!!! I was a stay at home mom to our girls, then went to work part time at the school district when they got older and I am still there. My favorite things to do is to watch my girls play sports, hang out with friends and family and LOVE riding on our Harley! I collect cookbooks, recipes and absolutely love RECIPEZAAR!! When I am bored I usually "read" my cookbooks or hop on the internet and find new recipes to try.
