I live on one side of the Kansas City Metro area and work on the other. My husband of two years is a full time Pharmacy Technician and full time Pharmacy school student. We love to cook at home. And eat out too of course.. ;) With all our busy days and nights we were looking to save time and money and discovered OAMC here on Recipezaar. We are relative newcomers to OAMC, we've been doing it for about 5 months now and have really relied on the contributions of other 'Zaar members for ideas and recipes. Of course, the other result of hectic lives is expanding waistlines, so we have both joined weight watchers recently with the goal of losing about 20 pounds each and maintaining a healthy weight. We have two other mouths to feed here, our 2 year old deaf Dalmation mix, Derby- who is featured in my icon, and our 10 year old cat Echo. Both enjoy eating almost as much as we do, but mainly get kibble. I work as an office manager in a busy vet clinic and want everyone to know that onions, raisins, grapes and chocolate are very toxic to dogs! Even if you are feeding only small amounts on a regular basis and don't see any immediate effects you may be taking years off your pet's life.
