Hi all, I'm Marci and this is my blog. Having never written a blog before I started by staring at the computer screen for ages but found that that didn't get any writing done so I decided to just go for it. I am anxious to share recipes and stories
with likeminded people and this seemed like the best place to start.
I am a retired restaurant owner and chef. I retired early because of lupus and arthritus. I now live in the country in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains with my husband. My son and daughter-in-law and grandson share our property but live in their
The last restaurant I had was in the small mountain town of Markleeville California and was quite an interesting place. The building it was in was moved to it's location at the end of the 1800s and was quite an amazing and historical place and haunted as well.
The clientele was varied, from bikers to judges and all groups in between. The bikers were some of my favorite customers and we did many money raising events that they helped with. These bikers were very community minded and loved to support events that
benefitted the local children and service groups.
I am a woman poker player and play very regularly. I have been playing Texas Holdem in a poker club where I have been the only female member for a couple of years. Our new season starts at the end of this week and Yay! we are getting another woman player!
I play a lot of poker online and also play tournament poker occasionally at casinos. I love the strategy and mathmatics of poker and I also love to win money. Luckily, I am playing on winnings these days which is even more fun.
I love to bake and am looking for some good bread recipes. I have been making all of our baked goods from scratch and am always looking for new and interesting recipes. I hope to hear from some of you. Happy eating!
