I love cross-stitching and reading any and every book I can get my hands on. I love going antiquing on the weekends. I love reading and watching tv shows about the ancient world...Greece, Egypt, Rome. My dream is to one day travel to Greece...wish we had time travel - I'd love to travel to ANCIENT Greece.
Being born and raised in Alabama, I love southern comfort foods the best. Give me some black eyed peas, corn bread, collards, and fried chicken and I'm in heaven.
I'm very proud to be the Forum Host for Table Setting & Decorating Ideas ...there is always something fun going on there!

Beginning September 2006, NcMysteryShopper and I hosted a cookathon for Amy (better known in the Zaar world as Chef Redneck Epicurean). Amy was a disabled diabetic and we asked the Zaar community to join us in showing our support and good wishes for her.
The response to Amy's cookathon was overwhelming and a wonderful testament to how much she is loved here at Zaar. A total of 109 Zaar chefs signed up to participate and a total of 142 reviews submitted. I was told that makes this the single largest turnout for a Zaar cookathon ever!
Amy's Cookathon Recipes cookbook can be seen above in my public cookbooks. Every recipe that was made and reviewed in the cookathon is listed there.
Sadly Amy passed away May 13, 2007. The Zaar world has lost a shining light in Amy and she will be so very greatly missed here.
God's promises are like the stars;
the darker the night
the brighter they shine.
One of my favorite restaurants is Outback Steak House....their Alice Springs Chicken is out of this world. I've tried some of the copycat recipes and found some that come really close, but Outback is still the best. I also adore eating at Dreamland BBQ. They simply can't be beat for bbq'd ribs.
I guess my favorite dish to make is Chicken and Dumplings like my Grandmother used to make. It takes me about 2 1/2 - 3 hours to get it done, but boy is it worth the effort!
I'm not a picky eater and love to try new recipes. HOWEVER, my DH is very picky so there are several things I don't cook. These are some of the foods he won't eat so I tend to stay away from preparing them:
rice (this has gotta be a "man thing"...DH's father doesn't eat rice, therefore DH won't eat it)
sour cream (after coming to Zaar, I discovered creme fraiche, so I get around this aversion that he has)
meat loaf (this one is almost a sin...!)
DH is not fond of Mexican foods (which I truly adore!).
Other than these, most everything else goes!
