They tell me that it's supposed to be flat here, but someone forgot to tell the Flint Hills about that. I'm a writer, an editor, a part-time student, a full time mother, and wife doing overtime. I adore cooking and baking, but I'm not nearly as good at it as I want to be. That, and I have to fight the coffeemaker for counter space. I like to thumb through the pages of the Joy of Cooking, but I use online recipe sources, like Recipezaar, most often.
