I live in Milwaukee, WI.....where I was born and raised. I've been married for 18 years---and luckily my husband loves to try new dishes.....although I've been known to spring new creations on friends and family too. I learned to cook from my Mom, growing up. She was a fabulous cook---who insisted that we make everything from scratch. (When I was a kid I didn't think that was so cool...........but now I'm sure glad she did that! My hobbies are cooking, beading, traveling and reading.
