I am married and the mother of 2 sons 16 and 21. The "wicked step mother" of a daughter who is currently serving our country in Iraq. I have worked in social services for the county for 26 years and am counting down 5 more until I can retire. Cooking has always been my form of relaxation and have been blessed to have a household of eaters who are ready to take on whatever I am cooking at the time. My friends and family know that food is my comfort and they are always more than welcome to be here for a meal and are happy to take home the leftovers. I have enjoyed trying many recipes I have found here on zaar but have not always been the best at reviewing them. I am going to try and get better at that. Now to find the time to post my own favorites. Just found out my daughter can come home by Thanksgiving Yeah That will send me on a cooking frenzy.
