We live about 40 miles south of San Francisco and 10 miles north of San Jose; in the Heart of Silicon Valley. My husband is retired from Hewlett-Packard/Agilent Technologies after 35 1/2 yrs. I haven't worked outside the home for many years due to health problems. My favorite cookbook is one I designed and printed myself in 1996. I sold it at a boutique I worked at and to friends and relatives. I raised $500.00 and donated all of it to Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Auxiliary at Stanford.
