I was born and raised in Abilene, KS....the same small town that Dwight D. Eisenhower was raised in. After moving around a lot for 20 years, my family and I now live within 10 miles of Abilene. My dear husband and I just celebrated our 30th year anniversary in October 2006. I have two great children and 3 beautiful grandchildren, ages 5,4 and 1 1/2. I watch my grandkids while their parents work. They have given me so many precious moments to hold dear to my heart and so many grey hairs...and I wouldn't trade these days for anything. They are my everything. I love to cook and try new recipes. I stumbled onto recipezaar a few years ago and it is now the only place I go looking for recipes. I love the wide variety of recipes and usually anything I search for, will provide me with many wonderful recipes to choose from.
