I live with my husband, one dog, and four cats. Our two sons are grown and on their own. I teach school in a small, rural school. My husband is retired and has taken over the cooking, for the most part. I love cookbooks. When I retire, I want to be even more involved with cookbooks and recipes. My favorite cookbooks are the Cooking Light yearbooks. I have from 2000 to present. I grew up in the South and love Southern cooking. I have relatives in Mississippi, Louisiana, South Carolina, and Virginia.
