I am a elementary teacher. I have always lived in Iowa except for a year spent in West Africa. I have travelled a lot in my previous life. (Before children). Have always loved to cook since I was in elementary. If I wasn't a teacher I would like to work in the test kitchen for a cooking magazine or at an animal shelter. Cooking is challenging at my house. Husband carnivore and daughter vegetarian.

Sausage Gravy (for Biscuits and Gravy)

I don't like the nutmeg. Maybe personal preference. I didn't grow up with nutmeg in my gravy so it tasted strange to me. I would prefer a spicy rather than sweet taste. — bkprice13 1/24/2010
