I've been married 10 years and have one daughter' a high maintenence 8 year old. Both husband and daughter are very picky eaters.I'm so bored of the same 10 meal(10 sounds like an over exaggeration to me)rotation that finding this site has inspired me to try some new things.Who cares if they eat any of it or not; that is what Taco Bell is for.LOL.I've been a psychiatric nurse for 20 years and work long hours so the crockpot is my friend. I've tried some new crockpot recipes and have been pleased at how they turned out.Hope to post a review soon. My favorite cookbook is whatever is my latest. Right now I'm enjoying "The Pat Conroy Cookbook". He is my favorite fiction author,a true good 'ol Southern boy.He loves to cook,eat and has a great sarcastic wit.
