I'm Elaine and I live in beautiful Bucks County, PA (suburbs of Philadelphia) with my wonderful husband and 2 daughters (a teen and a tween).
I love to cook and bake and make most meals for my family. I'm always willing to give new recipes a try.
My younger daughter and I are also horseback riders. Being around the horses helps me keep my sanity!
I hate to throw anything away that might be useful to someone else (that doesn't mean that it's junk).
