- I am also married to my best friend/love of my life and we will be married for 10 years this May!
- we have one 2.5 year old boy who is an extremely picky eater
- I do not work outside of our home, but I do have obligations outside of the home three days a week (preschool for two and bible study for one) that makes planning ahead or last minute recipes a must
- my husband eats leftovers for lunch 5 days a week so this plays a major role in my meal planning
- we also work on what I consider a fairly conservative budget for groceries
- my husband has type I diabetes so as much as I love russet potatoes I try to cook low glycemic-index foods
- I really agree with Betsy here: I really enjoy cooking, but don't want to spend all day, every day doing it
- I am relatively new to the "unprocessed food" movement but I love it's repercussions that eliminate or at least lower the amount of crazy ingredients that we eat
- I also love to shop and buy locally grown produce
- I got my copy of HTCE for my birthday last year (August 2009) and I cook from it at least once a week and ususally much more than that
- I have used it more than any other cookbook since it has graced my kitchen counter
- really the only other cookbook that I go to regularly is "The Complete America's Test Kitchen" for fancy recipes like pizza bianca and New York style crumb cake
- Betsy was the first person to tell me about this cookbook and since then I have bought two copies to give to friends

I love Betsy's idea of sharing about who we are as cooks so here is my rundown:
It was my idea to start this blog mainly because there are so many recipes in this cookbook and with several of my friends owning and using it I wanted a place for us to share our experiences.
