I live in Seattle, Washington and work for a transitional Housing Shelter. I manage their kitchen so I really enjoy being able to come up with alot of different recipes. 90% of our food products are donated so it is a real challenge sometimes to come up with good, nutritious meals. I have 2 children, a daughter living in Elko, Nevada and a son, in the Navy in southern California. I also have 2 grandchildren with another one on the way. I enjoy cooking for my husband and friends, crocheting and playing games.

My favorite cooking traditions is my husband and I both cooking holiday dinners for friends and family. We also entertain alot and I can show off my cooking skills.
My cooking triumphs
My biggest triumph was last Christmas when I made a traditional dinner with all the trimmings from scratch, for 12 people, and had dinner on the table by 2:00 in the afternoon. It was my best holiday dinner yet.
My cooking tragedies
When I had first started cooking I tried to make chili from scratch and it turned out tasting like spaghetti.
