I have been cooking since I was very young and have been teaching young children the joys of cooking but especially eating what you cook. My oldest grand-daughter loves to help me any time I cook and is learning as she goes. I live on a ranch in Texas and spend my time raising my 10 horses, hunting, fishing, and flower and vegetable gardening. We usually have alot of people almost every weekend who can't wait to see what I have made for them. Making up recipes as I go is what I am all about.
