This is my first time in a forum. I'm not sure what to contribute so I will introduce myself. I am Mary from Champaign, IL. I raised 3 daughters and helping to raise one granddaughter. We love to cook together when we can. I learned from the best, my MOM. Then I learned in college. I went to BYU and graduated in home ec ed. It took about 15 yrs but I finally got to teach. I taught high school cooking classes. I loved teaching, but grew tired of the quality kids I got and the politics. Left to be a truck driver with my husband, got in a serious accident in June and now I am disabled. I would love to contribute, but I mostly do good old home basics. If you need help in that area, let me know. I am really good. My daughter (30 yrs old) that lives with me tells me the stuff we have in the kitchen or the leftovers that are available and says "Mom, work your magic".
