I am a stay-at-home wife, whose husband works on a ranch in Northeastern Nevada. He works extremely long hours and is STARVING when he gets home. We are always looking for good, nutritious foods to add a little spice to our normal menu. My best friend's Mother is first generation American, having come from Austria when she was a young woman. To this day she still cooks the foods she grew up on, so I suppose one could say that SHE is my favorite "Cookbook". :-) My passions are my husband, my dog, cat and cockatiel, as well as cooking the best meals I can, whether an everyday meal or something REALLY special for a birthday, holiday or any other special occasion. As time goes on, I am sure I will add more to this section of my "About Me" page.
