I live in Lawrence, KS and work for the University of Kansas...GO HAWKS!!! I have been married to my great husband for a little over 10 years now. We don't have human children but consider our dogs to be our kids. I love to camp, fish, take our dogs, Murphy & Willow to the dog park. My photo icon is Willow at about 9 weeks old. I am truely a dog person and spoil mine, they are rotten!! One of my favorite cookbooks is The Joy of Cooking. I can usually find just about any recipe in that book. I also really love the Zaar since finding it.
