I love to sing Barbershop Harmony (Sweet Adeline Int.) in addition to a love for road racing and the SCCA community! (google it!) My family's cooking history is rooted in the farm country of Central New York State. Mom knew how to can fresh vegetables from the garden, tap our Maple trees to make homemade syrup, and the value of simple cooking using inexpensive ingredients. Add to that a husband who favors spicy foods and ethnic choices like West Indian, or Asian, and the soul food of the deep south, and my own roots of Germanic and English (is there such a thing?) cooking and our family has a wide variety of favorites plus an adventurous spirit to try new things!
