Simple life I've been married 38 years, we have 3 grown children and 2 grandchildren. I love simple living -- home, needle crafts, cooking, exercise, reading and spending time with family and friends. My husband and I are currently in the process of downsizing. Lots of work!

Allrecipes has helped me become a better cook. The recipes inspire me to try new things and to be creative. I like the variety of recipes offered. . . I started using the site as a regular American cook. There are recipes for that style. When I started cooking more raw foods and eating a healthier diet, I found lots of recipes for that too!
