My family and I live in sunny Sequim, Washington. I have 8 children and love to cook. its a good thing I do because it seems like its something I just cant get out of LOLL. I work part time at a wonderful cafe here in sequim.I think my love for cooking really grew from there. I have a cookbook collection, I just can't seem to get enough of them. I really like to collect older ones that have been put together by church groups or clubs they seem to have those recipes everyone's Mom or grandma made for yrs. I have always been the type of cook that does not always have recipes for the things I make. I have just started putting my own recipes down on paper that have been in my head for so long. I think my children might like to have them someday. Also it seems the more kids I have and the older I get the more I can't seem to remember. So I better right it down before I forget. I am new to recipezar and have really enjoyed the recipes I have found here.
