After years of collecting cookbooks, browsing magazines for recipes and experimenting, Ruth MacMullin said cooking is one of her favorite hobbies.
"I've got tons of cookbooks and I love trying new recipes," she said. Other hobbies for the 77-year-old are gardening, flower arranging, decorating for Christmas and staying involved with the lives of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
MacMullin and her husband, James, moved to Norwalk last spring from Bay Village. Two of their daughters, Lois Conry and Katie Barnes, live in Norwalk. Daughter Jean Sandifer lives in Tampa, Fla. Six of their grandchildren live in Norwalk and the seventh lives in Bellevue.
