I live in a suburb of NYC, and have all of my life. I am married to my high school best friend after many years of being separated. He's truly lovely. We have a beautiful son, we love him so much! I have a science background and used to do cancer research. I now work with fused glass and make jewelry. Am I a good cook? Well, no one has been hospitalized after eating my cooking! That's all I can say about that. My lack of cooking experience keeps me from reviewing recipes with confidence because many times the problem isn't with the recipe. I keep trying and am hopefully improving. 'Zaar has definitely helped! I wish everyone peace, health and happiness.
