I live in NC I am a qc tech. I have been married for 40 years to Steve we have a daughter named Melinda and she has 2 boys. I have a neice that I raised and she has a daughter that was born on Christmas day what a special blessing that Christamn day was. We have 4 dogs that think that thay own the house(whick they do). I love to cook all types of food but I have to be careful of some food as my husband and grandson has acid reflux. I love to use the crock pot as much as possible going home after working all day and open the door to the smell of something cooking is great. I love this web site it has great recipes that do not require a lot of time to prepare.
