I am a Christian and as old as dirt...LOL I live on the beautiful MS Gulf Coast. We lost our home to Katrina but we are in our new place now,,on the same property...so we are doing fine..I have three cats,,a dog, and a DH who used to be a singer for years in a band...now he is a contractor. I raised Cairn Terriers, made handbuilt pottery and sold on eBay for years..I was one of the first sellers on there.. I love to collect Church cookbooks,,or community cookbooks...and that is my life..my DH is much more interesting than I am...LOL I like to cook but I am a plain and simple cook...Southern style....I just bought a kitchen Aid Mixer and bread machine though beacause we both have high blood pressure (My DH and me) and I can't find a low sodium bread as low as we need to go and it looks like I will be making a low of made from scratch foods from now on. We got rid of all boxes, cans, except no salt,,,,and jars like pickels, olives, etc.
