Hello my name is Hannah and I have recently joined this community. I LOVE it! I live in Scottsdale, AZ with my husband, my twin girls and four kitties. I wish I had more time just to go around the site and be able to read every single comment and suggestion. I work full time for a university in an international operations capacity. I recently finished an MBA that took away most of my free time (if I had any!) I was always a good eater but a cook~ never! not until I married my beloved husband who loves good food and professional portions. We are Jewish and we also started keeping the Sabbath so every week I had to start looking for new ideas and dishes that we could eat on Friday night. I don't follow the traditional Sabbath menu but we are strictly kosher. I love to explore new recipes every single week. I prepare at least 10 different dishes for Friday night this includes appetizers, salads, one or two fish courses and one meat course. When we have guests I add a chicken course. My husband in not a chicken fan so I looooooove to please him and look for as many beef recipes as I possibly can. I learned to cook from scratch but had a great influence from my mom who is a terrific self made cook too. I was raised in Mexico City I am used to shop and prepare everything fresh.
