Since moving to Toronto, one of my greatest joys has been volunteering at a nearby temporary residence for refugee claimants. Canada's immigration policy is such that over 100,000 refugees are admitted into the country each year to begin the process of gaining permanent residence. One of the… MORE

About Me
My husband and I have served as Evangelical missionaries in Spain for twelve years. After spending a fantastic year directing an international volunteer program in Toronto, Canada, we have recently relocated to Greenville, South Carolina. After 22 moves in 28 years I call no place my hometown. My roots are in Jesus Christ.
My favorite things to cook
I love Spanish food! Real Spanish, not Mexican, not Tex-Mex, but Spanish! I make a great paella, and my Tortilla Española almost always has 'muy buena pinta'.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have picked up a lot of Spanish cooking traditions. But, Christmas Eve is always Norwegian Meatballs in Gravy with Lignonberries, mashed potatoes, and peas. I picked up recipes from my Norwegian aunt while growing up.
My cooking triumphs
In December 2003 I won an all-village baking contest in Spain for a Raspberry Cheesecake Brownie Pie!
My cooking tragedies
We once had friends over for dinner, and I mis-read a recipe for stuffed pork chops. They waited an extra hour before I was able to serve them! But at least it turned out!
