I am a nurse and I breed and run barrel and race horses. Live on a farm and we are in the process of remodeling the house. Just got my new granite countertops and just love them. I never knew how handy it would be to pull something straight from the oven and place it on the countertop to cool, or slice and dice food right on the countertop. VERY NICE!!! Anyways, I joined recipezaar to have a way to post my grandmothers recipes for my family. Some of them are difficult to translate but if you have any ideas let me know.
