My name is Joni. I just turned 50, and I live in beautiful NH with my husband and 3 kids. My oldest son is on his own, and my oldest daughter is in college, and my youngest daughter is graduating soon from high school. With all the kids grown, I now have more time to cook and be creative in the kitchen. I cook all the time, and enjoy it a lot. I cook pretty basic most of the time, and I love to bake, especially around Christmastime to make up cookie trays for my friends and family. I decided to join Recipezaar as I am looking for some new recipes that my family will enjoy. Variety is the spice of life after all!
