Passions are reading, organic foods, cooking, and animal rescue - I am obsessive about animal rights, especially dogs. I ride a motorcycle with my husband and we love to camp - and I'm pretty good at fast stove-top meals since my husband and I live on a tiny sailboat with a 2-burner Coleman stove (no oven). I have a gazillion allergies & other health problems, plus celiac disease, and I'm on a restricted diet, no gluten or grains except rice, and no soy, citrus, melon, dairy, eggs, peanuts, nuts, nightshade vegetables, or anything processed. Love fresh salads, seafood, just about any vegetable, and trying new cuisines. I am thrilled (!!!) to have found this site!
