I hail from the Northeast. I am 35 y/o, married for 8 years with 2 children (6 and 3 y/o). I work full-time in the public safety field. I love to cook more than bake and always looking for new and exciting ideas. Been following a low-carb diet plan and have lost almost 30 lbs so far! Recipezaar has become my favorit cookbok. So many diverse chefs! I'm hooked!!
