I live in Ceres, California, near Modesto. I work for an owner/operator property management company as an accountant. I am very, very left brained, except for this little corner that loves to perform. I sing with the Modesto Symphony Orchestra Chorus, and have performed in several plays with our church as well. My favorite cookbook is the Internet! I have found so many awesome recipes in the last couple of years just browsing. I am passionate about my family ... husband of 31 years, 1 daughter, 2 sons, 1 son-in-law, 2 daughters-in-law, and 4 grandchildren (1 boy, 3 girls ... all my daughter's). My major pet peeve is people that find nothing better to do than complain about other people! Lighten up!
