Having had a lot of time on my hands recently due to a complex knee surgery in Dec. 2011, I decided to do a blog for fun so that I would be able to share my love of cooking and recipes with my friends and family. It incorporates everything I like to do including writing, photography and messing around in the kitchen and craft room. Now that I am back walking, although it may be like Frankenstein, I can get in my kitchen and try all the ideas I have had while I was laid up for 3 months. I am a mother of 2 teen boys and wife of my hot and patient husband for almost 19 years. I am a lover of food, beer, travel and all things shiny and colorful. To quote a somecard..”I do many things well, just none of which generate income”, hopefully I can now add blogging to that list.
