I am originally from Greenville, Mississippi, so I am very partial to "southern, comfort" foods. I work part-time as a chaplain in a medical center in the city. I like to cook, garden, and read to relax and enjoy life. I also like to cook and "hostess" for friends. My favorite recipes are varied 'cause I'll try anything long or short, lots of ingredients or few, if I've got the time to work without rushing. I don't think preparing food should ever be rushed if you can help it! I also like thinking about and adding a prayer to the dish I'm fixing for those who'll share it with me. I really like Recipezaar.com and I'm glad I found this website. I've gotten some really good recipes from this site!
