I am Tara and as a former dance teacher I admit I love to turn up my music and dance while I get my cook on. I am a?42 y/o mom of a 15 year old son, Jordan, our 14 y/o cat Gage, a 10 y/o year old English Bulldog, Halli. After working 15 years in a hospital setting, in 2011 I joined the staff of a very large and very busy specialty/surgical opthamology practice. I love reading, cooking, gardening, computer games, animals, music, and of course, dancing. I enjoy spending time w/my son, doing fun kid things with him. 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. And I LOVE soup! My mom is a caterer and runs her catering business with 2 other partners, O'Brien's Really Good Food. 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, 11 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! 8726762"
