Actually I'm from a very small town in Canada... Happy Valley, it's in Labrador which is part of Newfoundland. It's small, my family is large and there's more love in that town than any of the 5 states I've lived... except maybe Charleston. My step dad was Air Force (just retired) and I'm active duty. I was stationed in SC for about 7 years and I miss it! Vegas isn't my scene, too crowded and too much misery.
My favorite things to cook
fajitas, kabobs, home made tacos... cakes, anything baking... i make a mean ice cream cake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
