I live in Chico, in Northern California. My life went straight from Sex in the City to the Brady Bunch when I married my wonderful husband and moved from the city to our smaller college town. He has three beautiful children and they love my cooking (thanks in part to recipezaar). To keep them happy I am always trying new things. My current cooking kick is OAMC or make ahead meals. My favorite cookbook is How to Cook Everything by Mark Bittman. I like to collect cookbooks so I have many.
