Hello! I'm a Montana native that has made my way back after a few moves. I've been married to my high school sweetheart for 21 years and we have twin boys who are 15 years old. Dh and I are partners in our own company and own 10 Subway sandwich shops. I work from our home handling all the financial and clerical duties of the business. Over the years and especially since finding Zaar, cooking has become my passion. My grandmothers were very good cooks and I have fond memories of the meals they prepared. We love entertaining and nothing pleases me more than having my family and others enjoy the food I make. I love it when the house smells good with dinner or whatever is baking. I came upon recipezaar searching for a rhubarb cake recipe one day. The recipe I chose was a 5 star and my addiction began. It took a few months before I started really utilizing the site but once I did my cooking has never been the same. My family now knows all about having to rate recipes, picking their favorite chefs, etc. It's become a family thing and they have told me that I may never let my membership to Recipezaar ever end. We love to travel and try to go whenever we can. Owning our own business has helped free up time where we can travel more. We've done some Europe, Canada, and much of the U.S. In the coming years I hope to do a lot more. Eating out when we are traveling is the best. I'm trying to learn more about the restaurants and chefs in places we are visiting so we can try and visit those restaurants and enjoy some of the great places our town just doesn't have. The whole family loves to ski and we look forward to the season every year - it makes winter tolerable. The kids are very involved in sports so we're always running to one game or another. Renting movies or just hanging out with friends is the making of a relaxing weekend for us.
