I am the proud momma to 24 children. Yes, twenty-four. My husband and I had 6 then took in 18 troubled teens. They are all grown now and have blessed us with 13 grandchildren. But with all those mouths I have a entire library of recipes. None of those books compares to the ease of the recipezaar.com site or the help I have found through fellow down home cooking enthusiasts that I have had the honor of meeting here. My true love is to find recipes that have been modified to use a crock pot, since my schedule is so crazy, that do not have the flavour or the texture get lost in translation.
