I hail from Wisconsin...God's Country. Where the air is clean, the scenery beatiful and the people are friendly. Come visit me! I am self-employed so I have a lot of time for my two favorite hobbies....motorcycling and cooking. We logged 21,000 miles last year. We entertain our 7 children and their families frequently so we BBQ alot. I love all type of cookbooks...but, especially regional church or organizational cookbooks...they know how to cook!! I love "peasant food"....meat, potatoes, etc. and chocolate. I am allergic to broccoli (even tho' I love it) . This site is awesome....some great cooks hang out here!
