I am a retired CNA, now in the Candle selling business. My husband and I recently moved to a small community in Montana, so I don't have great access to a variety of ingredients. This site is great for finding recipes that have ingredients that most have on their shelves. I love the variety of ideas and check everyday for something new to make. I like to scrapbook, camp and spend time with my 3 grandchildren. I have 2 cats, one I love and one I adopted and tolerate. Would love to have a small dog, but my not so dog friendly kitty would not be happy so that will have to wait.
