I'm a California girl by birth and yet I find myself in the south! I've lived in the Northeast, too. I have a wide variety of culinary tastes and love to experiment with flavors and combinations. My husband says I have a natural inclination to make each and every recipe my own. I cannot, he says, follow a recipe to the letter. I guess he's right! So, I come to recipezaar more for inspiration than anything else. Here's to happy cooking!
