I now have the time to devote to cooking and have a new kitchen. I am having the time of my life. I love any kind of cooking or baking but am having to rein myself in because there are just the two of us. I love RecipeZaar because I can see how other people handled recipes and their ratings. And it helps me cook from scratch. I have participated more in this site than any other. I haven't posted any recipes because I have been so busy trying others. My other passions are sewing, quilting, gardening, hiking, white water rafting. I am also a birder by marriage.
