RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
<p>For someone as outgoing as I am, it is astounding that I have been unable to do something as seemingly simple as filling out my home page, so consider this draft one...(or would that be daft one??)... <br /> <br />I am blessed to live an ordinary life, have family that I dearly love, get great reward from volunteer work, and have the luxury of indulging in far too much time cooking and reading about food. I am a retired nurse and have been married to a really wonderful man for 37 years. I am a happy person, and my life is very satisfying, but somehow I can't translate the essence of ME into words, as some on Zaar have done so well. <br />I particularly enjoy reading reviews, and the Q&A forum for all the expert and generous advice that the members share. <br />Since joining Zaar, I rarely use my extensive cookbook library...this is one terrific site. <br /> <br /><img src=http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/Swap14.JPG alt= /></p>
