I have been married to my best friend, Dennis for 30 years. We have an 18 year old daughter, who just started college. Yay for us that she decided to live at home and commute to Cal State University San Marcos. We also have a spunky, two year old German Shepard named Remington, he could play all day … and does. 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 started and belong to three book clubs. One decided not to read anymore, so we are now known as “social club”. I look forward to my daily walk 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. There will be many, however, that I come up with on my own.
