I love to cook, and I consider myself to be rather good at it. Right now as of this writing, I prefer to bake but after the holidays that will change to cooking new things and trying new recipes. The holidays are when I truly love baking family favorites and trying new baking recipes that will either become something that I share with my family or something that I toss in the trash because it is horrid, LOL.. Having said that, there are many areas that I have not ventured into and would like to try. I am 47, married, and we have animals as our children. We have Chewi who is our German Shepard, Nikki is our Shih Tzu, and Kiddle is our Russian Blue cat.
