I live in the DFW area but was born and raised in the Husker state. I love old church cookbooks and have a ton in my old wardrobe that I have converted to a cookbook library. My passions are cooking, shopping for groceries and just being able to spend quiet time with my husband after the 4 kids are in bed! Pet Peeves......hmmmmmmmm, people who won't see themselves for who they really are. If I had a month off.....what would that be???? I would just take time to garden, enjoy the outside, spend time in a place of quiet, read, cook alot and just rest.
