I am 38 and live in Northern California. I enjoy cooking for my friends and family. I like trying new recipes but nothing too adventurous, I have some picky people to feed. I tend to stick to homestyle favorites but I have a couple aces up my sleeve! I have been cooking since I was about ten years old, when my mother started teaching me the basics. I was cooking dinner for the family by the time I was twelve.I love to cook a great meal everyone enjoys but my favorite is when someone else cleans up the kitchen afterwards!
