I am a cookbook collector fanatic...lol . No family at home now, but love looking and finding unusual and new recipes. I had a couple published in a Taste of Homes Cookbook one year which thrilled me although I am not a Chef or even a top-notch cook and am not bragging, but just to see them in print was an achievement for me. My hobbies besides cooking are gardening, yard & flower tending and YES! horseback riding when I get a chance and taking care of her and two dog friends..Love Just A Pinch for it's many versatile cooks and easy manuevering through the site to find whatever.
