I have two boys who will usually eat most things I put in front of them. As a single mom I use them as my guinea pigs....sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I have a huge garden, blueberry and blackberry bushes. I am always looking for a new recipe. I have three cats (Xiao Mao, which means little cat in Chinese, Pumpkin and Max) and two border collies, Lucy and Grace. All my animals come from Rescue Agencies. <a href="¤t=rsc002.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"><a href="¤t=006.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a><a href="¤t=hilfiger001.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
