I live in a little town 20 miles southwest of Seattle, WA. I recently retired from the state after 27 yrs. due to MS. I follow a healthy diet of primarily fish, chicken, vegetables, fruit & whole grain foods. My favorite cookbok is from Pampered Chef. I also enjoy the little Pillsbury cookbooks. I love the northwest and the water. I live near the Mukilteo Beach (part of Puget Sound). My pet peeve is those who can't find anything good in everything.
