Hi Everyone! New here from Texas

Hiya everyone! I've been lurking here for a week or two and just really like this forum.

I've been a home cook basically since I was 5 - assisting my mom. I was putting full meals on the table since age 10. My mom and grams really taught me well.

Now, I cook for my hubby and sometimes my kitties (with veterinary approval, of course).

For Christmas 2014, my hubby got me a much anticipated Excalibur food dehydrator, and I absolutely LOVE it! Hadn't had much chance to use it as I was injured in a recent car accident on 2/13, but used it the other day to make some lovely potato chips. Hubby ate most of them before I could get to them...

I also love to bake, cook just about anything for ourselves and groups of friends, and of course use that dehydrator.

I have a recipe for fresh salsa that Randy (hubby) and I created several years ago that is always requested at parties. We had fun that weekend eating the "mistakes". I'll see if I can't post that in the near future.

The cold and icy weather we've been having really get me enjoying making stews. I don't have any recipes for those - just all by taste and what is in the pantry/fridge.

If you can't tell, I can be a bit chatty.

This is a great and informative group and I hope to be a positive contributer.
