I have turned FOURTY this year, married to a wonderful, husband and am a stay at home mom to three, two teenage girls and a first grade boy. I was raised in the South and am a great southern cook! I love to cook and try out new recipes. My favorite recipes come from the recipe collections of others, like church or school cookbooks, potlucks, I like the ones that others tend to want to share because they think they are good...and they usually are! I also like gardening, scrapbooking, reading and going to the movies. I have a cocker spaniel that is part of the family, not a pet.
