RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I work in communications for a non-profit organization in Lincoln, Nebraska. I got married in October 2008 to my lovely husband, who benefits greatly from this Web site. We've been together since December 2006 and I have been cooking for him ever since we met. Thank you to everyone who has tried or is considering trying my recipes. <a href="http://s224.photobucket.com/albums/dd235/MidwestMaven/?action=view&current=cookieswapparticip.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd235/MidwestMaven/cookieswapparticip.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
