I'm the Director of Domestic Relations at our house and of all my duties, cooking is definitely my favorite. Our kids were always rather finicky eaters, so I had to get creative at times. But I'm so fortunate to have a husband that will eat just about anything I set in front of him. That gives me license to try new recipes and ideas almost every day (since all but two of the kids are grown and gone).

When I'm not hanging out at the stove I like to read, play computer games, do volunteer work and I sing in our church choir.

I would love to write a book that would teach beginning cooks all the little things that took me years to learn. Things like, how adding a tsp of salt to the water for boiling eggs makes them a breeze to peel. Or the difference between margarine and butter when baking something. Maybe someday...
