I am a 2 year breast cancer survivor. I work full time for a software company in technical support. I am a student at our local college and will have my AS degree next year in Library Science. I started a jewelry making business this year. I am mother of two, stepmother of 2 and grandmother of 4. I love to cook and bake, and I love to read. I live at a beautiful lake on the Central Coast of California. It is a new up and coming wine region so we do wine tasting and events.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook dishes with lots of FLAVOR! I love goat cheese and feta cheese and I love to make sauces. I love to bake desserts but my husband isn't a sweet eater so I end up bringing them to work, which has made me very popular!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cioppino on Christmas Eve, Hoppin John on New Years Day and the full spread for Thanksgiving!
My cooking triumphs
I made all the food for my daughter's baby shower last year. I think it was a big hit. People couldn't believe I made all the food!
My cooking tragedies
Too many to mention, but I learned from each one!!
