Excuse the construction going on ... please enjoy your visit to my homepage! I don't think there's anything better than spending time with family and friends and enjoying delicious food together. I just love food. I love reading about food, writing about food, cooking food and.. not surprisingly, eating food. My latest passion is food-photography! I'm still learning a lot, but I'm trying to post photos with all my recipes and reviews. I read recipe books, magazines and food blogs like novels. I get such satisfaction when someone enjoys a meal or dessert that I have prepared. It is the biggest compliment to me when my family and friends rave about my cooking. I just about fell out of my chair when I received word that my audition tape had been selected! Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to have the experience I was about to have. To read more about my trip to New York to be filmed by Food Network and star in my own series click on my blog link on the right under my website. See all the videos and recipes here! Be sure to leave a comment too! I live in Central Valley California and love the small community town. I have been married to my best friend Ric for 20 years. We were blessed with 3 boys that keep me on my toes. Our lives are constantly moving. My boys play football and are very active, which means, they're ALWAYS hungry! ;) My favorite quote: The best thing to hold on to in life is each other. - Audrey Hepburn Here is a recent photo of my family after both our older sons winning their Dogbowl football games. GO BULLPUPS!! ... and a few family shots. I decided to get my many recipes organized online when I found Recipezaar. I had no idea this would soon change my life. I joined Zaar Sept 06' and have become addicted to the website ever since! My husband totatlly supports my addiction to Zaar as I am a fulltime stay-at-home Mom. I have made so many wonderful friends on Zaar who I communicate with on a daily basis. Zaar has become a second home not only to me, but my family as they are enjoying all the different recipes I am preparing. Zaar has a community of comradity you won't find anywhere else. Here is a photo of my friends and I (all from Zaar) in Costa Rica. We were thrilled to have been invited to NcMysteryshopper's Wedding where I had the pleasure of meeting other zaar girls. I will never forgot the wonderful memories of this awesome vacation and spending time with the girls I have been talking to online for over 2 yrs and their wonderful dear husbands. We had a blast! Click on the photo and see more photos from our Hola from Costa Rica Thread ;) In the photo, left to right: Leslie, daughter sarah, Nancy (Sassafrasnanc), Hope (Mama'sKitchen), Cheryl (NcMysteryshopper) Myself and Chelle (MommyDiva) There are so many terrific recipes on this site. If I'm looking for something, I'm sure to find it here. I do have stacks of my own favorite recipes which I am slowly but surely getting in my cookbooks here on Zaar. I have had so many awesome reviews and fabulous photos taken of my recipes... I try to thank everyone personally .. I sincerely appreciate each and every review and or comment left. I know it takes time to photograph and upload photos - So I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for finding and trying my recipes and taking the extra effort...
