On Wednesday morning, I visited Fayetteville in Lincoln County, where we lost two Tennesseans as a result of Monday’s tornadoes. Crissy’s and my deepest sympathies and prayers go out to all affected by these devastating storms.

I like to cook. I could tell you this is because I really appreciate the beauty of the culinary arts, but the truth is I like to eat. I’ve been known to come up with a fabulous recipe or two, but I am not perfect.

Normally, I like to think I’m pretty organized. I know where everything in the house is whether it belongs to me, which is a good thing when my husband can’t find his favorite T-shirt (It’s folded up on top of the dresser) or when my daughter is having a meltdown because her Lalaloopsy doll is apparently “gone forever” (It’s on her bed).
