I was born and raised in Kentucky, but currently live in AZ by way of CA. (How is that for a combo?) I lived in CA for 2 1/2 years, am glad to say that I had the chance to become friends with Color Guard Mom. I also had the chance to see a lot of Southern CA, all around LA, San Diego, Big Bear, Disneyland, even to Vegas and Laughlin in NV. Now a resident of AZ, so I plan to explore this area for a bit. I have learned to be adaptable to new situations, but I am a Kentucky girl at heart and always will be. Those Southern roots show in my cooking, but I am always up for trying new things. My favorite foods to cook are Mexican, Italian, comfort foods, and desserts. These are my favorites to eat as well. I also like Chinese food but I have found I am not very adept at making that just yet. I will get there eventually.
