I have been married to my best friend, Dennis for over 32 years. We have a 21 year old daughter, who is a junior in college. Yay for us that she decided to live at home and commute to Cal State University San Marcos. We also have a spunky, five year old German Shepard named Remington, he could play all day … and does. Dennis and I enjoy spending our free time together going to the movies, reading, taking walks on the beach and just being together. We love to take a ride along the beautiful San Diego coast.
There is nothing I love more than entertaining in my home and cooking for others. Sharing my table with friends and family feeds my soul with so much heartfelt joy. So many great conversations come together at the dinner table and great memories are made there. I enjoy spending time in my backyard flower garden, walking for exercise and reading. I belong to a book club that I started with my neighbor, Laura. I also try to follow along on Jenna Bush Hager’s book club. I also enjoy my social club and our dinner club. Friends definitely fill my heart with love and joy. I look forward to my daily walk, followed by some dead heading of my flowers in my garden and I love to decorate. Ironing once a week for two hours allows me to catch up on my favorite cooking shows and watch my favorite celebrity t.v. chefs (Ina Garten (the Barefoot Contessa), Ree Drummond (the Pioneer Woman), and Nancy Fuller (Farmhouse Rules) I enjoy learning from them all)! I hope to pass on what I learn from these amazing women. I’ll always mention in my blog who inspired a certain recipe. Most of my recipes I come up with on my own while walking. It seems to be the time I can be my most creative.
