my husband and i recently bought an old farm house in southern Pa. Plenty of room for a vegetable garden as i enjoy canning and making preserves, many recipes taken from recipezarr. I do not work outside the home, in past years i was a baker, chef, waitress, and a juvinile corrections officer. I have a large collection of cookbooks and i love them all. I enjoy cooking for my family and friends. I am passionate about being creative and trying new ideas. Pet peeves are people who lie and are fake.
