I live in the middle of nowhere Iowa with my husband and two sons, aged 11 and 8, our two dogs and cat. I have been on maternity leave for over 11 years now. :-) We enjoy being outdoors, traveling, drinking fine wine and of course, eating. I come from a long line of good cooks. My mother, grandmothers and aunts are all at home in the kitchen. I've gotten many wonderful recipes that have passed down through the generations.
