We (the husband and I) live in Colorado. I work in the auto glass industry and WOW it is challenging! ('Challenging' was the nicest word I could come up with to replace 'sucky'.) I have only been cooking for about 2 or 3 years and I have to be honest...if I didn't have Recipezaar recipes...we'd starve. I guess I just don't have that 'natural cooking compass' that most people have. I laugh when people say, "Oh just improvise." Huh? I need direction. And exactness! A pinch of what? Why not a quarter of a teaspoon? Or none! If it's only a pinch will we REALLY miss it if it's not there? Why use it? But just as I say this I will admit that I am getting much better. I'm not as afraid to try new things. It's just that my success percentages used to be FAR less common than my failure rate. My husband says I'm too hard on myself and he seems to enjoy every last morsel of everything I cook, so I guess that's what counts. He always manages to remind me however, of this GOD AWFUL concoction I made once in the 90's with my new TURBO COOKER. I'm surprised he still married me after that. We have a cat named Kitt E. and she rules our home. If I were a cat I would want to live at our house. I'd have it made. I'm a Food Network Addict. I can't get enough. I have become very proficient in altering recipes from "high in fat & calories" to "low in fat & calories". I'm down 17 and a half pounds and I'm very proud of that! (UPDATE: 27 pounds!) And now that I found this site, I've noticed I am ALWAYS here. It's such a welcoming community. I have printed a MILLION recipes in the last couple of weeks. I'm gonna need a new ink cartridge, a ream of paper, and a TREADMILL. (Update: Hubby bought me a treadmill-YAY!)
