I live and work in So. Cal. I'm so happy that I found The 'Zaar community because it has done nothing but improve the way I cook and entertain. Thank you everyone!!!! Passions: cooking and trying new recipes, planning vacations....if I ever take one, Karaoke, teaching, reading, collecting recipes on the 'Zaar. My little motto...... "Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming.....WOW, What A Ride!!!!"
