I live in rural southwest Michigan. I love to be outside (more so in the summer than winter!) working in my yard/garden, camping and hiking. I am an avid reader - I will read just about anything put in front of me if it's written well. Of course I love to cook. I like to experiement and try new things, but keep it simple. I am not into "gourmet" cooking. I'd say I'm more of a country cook. I am a stay at home mom and am currently homeschooling my youngest child. I have been married for almost 12 years now and live a pretty ordinary life in the country.
I love a wide range of foods but pasta is probably my favorite. I like to experiment and try different things. I try not to cook the same things over and over. I prefer to cook from "scratch" and try to stay away from processed foods as much as possible.
