Thank-you for stopping by! ND has always been my home. Grew up in a small rural community and now live on a farm with my husband and grown son. We have 4 children and 3 grandchildren. I have worked for a pasta company for a good number of years - very proud of the hard work everyone has done to grow this company that began as a farmer owned co-operative. If you buy the store branded pasta at a chain grocery store in the US, there's a very good possibility you have eaten pasta made in ND. We also make a lot of pasta for a good number of chain restaurants you may have eaten at. I very much enjoy cooking and baking. I find Zaar to be a plethora of interesting and smart people willing to share not only recipes, but a lot of knowledge that help me grow my own skills, tempts me into trying new things and help in making better choices. I also enjoy reading and sewing (quilting mostly) and a little gardening. Trying to learn knitting - my granddaughter, who is six, has asked for a sweater. I figure if I start on an adult sweater now, I might have one done for her when she graduates high school! Recipe rating I use (borrowed from Tish's page) 5 stars - This recipe is perfect. I would recommend it to others and would definitely make again. 4 stars - This recipe was good but I would change something in it next time. 3 stars - This is a recipe I would not make again but it was "OK" 2 stars - This recipe I would not make again and we didn't like it at all 1 star - This recipe did not work out/taste was unappealing and I wouldn't make it again
