I'm retired now so obviously have more time to experiment with recipes. Have 11 grandchildren and a great grandchild. These grandkids always expect the best food when they come so I can't let them down. We love Las Vegas and the Gulf Coast. Anytime we can get to warm weather, I'm ready to go .. Wisconsin gets cold. It seems like everyone in my husbands family are great cooks so there are times when I feel like I'm competing. They have published their own cookbook and it's so great to have family recipes. I own several from churches and such and they seem to be the best. But, this site is one of my favorites. We have so many fruit trees that canning and preserving consumes me in the late summer and early fall. Making chutney is one of my favorite things to make and gift to others.
