I am a Kentucky girl, born and raised. I do wear shoes and have all my own teeth. I am an architectural drafter by trade. I am currently very involved in decorating and landscaping my home. My passion is researching and experimenting with various wall painting techniques. My home is my canvas! I collect recipes although I have no particular talent for cooking. I can follow a recipe, even altar it somewhat but when I have attempted to create my own dish, it has too often ended up not palatable. This is why Recipezaar has proven to be such a valuable tool for me.
