I have been married to my best friend, Dennis for over 34 years. We have a 22 year old daughter, who is a senior in college. Kylie recently became engaged to the love of her life, Jacob. They just moved into their first apartment and got a new puppy named Phoebe. Kylie is loving living in her own place and I’m so proud of her, seeing her take care of her home and and doing all of her own cooking. She is always looking for new recipes to try and and enjoys making them for Jacob. Dennis and I have a spunky, six 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 also love to take a ride along the beautiful San Diego coast. Since Kylie is now out on her own, I’m enjoying trying new dishes to make for just two. That being said, I love when her and Jacob come for dinner.
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 and Reese Witherspoons’ book clubs. I enjoy my social club and our dinner club. Friends definitely fill my heart with love and joy. I look forward to my daily walk, my time in the garden with my flowers and decorating. Doing our ironing 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.
