I'm Diane, from Texas. I have been cooking for my
family for over thirty-three years. I am still married
to my high school sweetheart. I am mom to two and
grandma to four little ones ages three to eleven.
I haven't worked in six years but you'd never know

local MADD chapter. I unfortunately stay very busy
I am always on the look out for something new to put
on the dinner table . . . my husband has gotten used
to being my taste tester. I hope to find the time
to send y'all some of our favorite recipes.
