I'm a stay-home mom of three beautiful children, and the domestic goddess of my DH's dreams. Yes, those are some big shoes to fill, but I love every day and enjoy the life we have built for ourselves. I guess you could say I'm quite the traditional homemaker. I prefer to cook from scratch, to include making our own bbq sauce, ketchup, salad dressing, etc. I plan to start working on my canning skills next fall, as well as more bread-making with our own home-ground flours. I do quite a bit of sewing, knitting, and crocheting, and have made many of the things my family uses daily (curtains, quilts, blankets, clothes, etc ...). My baking skill is still a bit low in my opinion, but I've been working hard on that and and so thankful for the 'tried and true' recipes and tips I've found here. I would like to thank you all here at 'Zaar for the wonderful recipes we've tried and for the inspiration you have given me.
