I grew up in the country & am happy to be living in the country again on 10 acres with my wonderful hubby, Kevin & baby daughter, Lilyanne & black lab, Roxy. Hope to have vegetable & flower gardens, fruit trees & chickens, soon. Hope to can a lot & make jellies & salsa in the near future as well. I love to cook, since it's necessary anyway, but allows me to experiment & be creative. I'm not afraid to try new recipes & techniques of cooking and love to try to duplicate restaurant foods in my own kitchen. And I love to bake, but have tried to cut back or find healthier recipes since we're trying to live a healthy lifestyle.
My favorite things to cook
