I seldom bake…believe me…but I do enjoy browsing for recipes and when I see recipes are noteworthy I dont pass them by. Cooking is another story altogether. I like to try different dishes that have simplied directions.and few ingredients. I gathered someof my favorite recipes from “JustaPinch”. All the recipes are created from the members themselves and they are tried and true. I have some of my recipes in the site.

First of all, I love to cook...not every night, but weekends are the best time to cook. I am a animal lover, especially wildlife. My next vacation would be to South Africa. To get personal and close up to wildlife would be fascinating. I like to read suspense, thriller novels. Regarding television....I like some reality shows, crime shows, comedies. I like to look at a recipe from a cookbook and do my version of it.. usually the healthier choice. I am all about substitutions, if a recipe calls for a ingredient there are dozens of ingredients you can substitute for the called-for ingredient. I like summer because I love cooking outdoors, swimming. It's just the fresh air that makes everyone want to get outside and do something. I love the air especially after the rain.... that nothing compares to that.
