I've been a member since 2007, when I stumbled across RecipeZaar while surfing recipes. I've been hooked ever since! I'm Mom to 3, Grandma to 5. My career is a joy to me. As a CNA, I am a caregiver for elders. The rewards are enormous! I'm a huge advocate for Alzheimers' research. Cooking is my therapy. Being in the kitchen preparing food is my favorite way to relax & de-stress. Other than cooking, I also enjoy reading, exploring thrift shops, and haunting our local farmers' markets. The friends I have made here are priceless to me. I love you all! .
