I live in central Idaho - home of pine trees and mountains. The photo is of my cat, Tommy. He adopted me when I moved into my current residence about 7 years ago. I work as office manager for a Real Estate company but spend my free time pouring thru recipes in search of something new and different. Baking has been my hobby since I was 9 years old and now as I rapidly approach 60, it's becoming an obsession! I have 3 married children and 13 grandchildren. My favorite cookbook is "Bach to the Kitchen" by the WA-ID Symphony league members. It is one of the best I've ever come across. I love to cook, eat, read, do crafts and spend time with my family. My pet peeve is people who can eat whatever they want and not gain weight!!!
