I have been on this site since Recipe Zaar. I could, and sometimes do, spend hours sorting, sifting and planning menus. My goal is to become more involved as well as keeping up with my reviews. I am extremely happily married with a lab/pit mix that is more like our child than a dog. My hubby and I both have a deep passion for for cooking. It's my way of winding down as well as using my creativity. I love recipes as much as I love to tweak them!
