My real name is Tara and yes, I shake my booty to some tunes while I cook. I am a 36 y/o mom of an 9 year old son, Jordan, our cat Gage, and a 5 year old English Bulldog, Halli, 2 frogs and currently, 5 hermit crabs. I work full time in the medical field. I love reading, cooking, gardening, animals, music, and of course, dancing. I enjoy spending time w/my son, doing fun kid things with him and always look forward to his little league season. I love the summer and despise winters; I must be cuddled up with a warm blanket, some tea and a good book to be able to endure the winter months here in PA. My mom is a caterer and runs her catering business with 2 other partners. They also run a downtown cafe and a stand at our local farmers market. Growing up, I never wanted to learn how to cook. Then I started my family and thankfully, stumbled upon Zaar on nite on the web while looking for a carrot recipe...and here I am, 8 years later! Now, my mom tells me that if she knew then what she knows now, I would've been cooking a long time ago....thanks to the help of this website!
