I live very close to my mother's family and enjoy it. My children are all within a 100 mile area in LA. I love my family very much! All of them. I am disabled. My favorite cookbook is "Recipes and Reminiscences of New Orleans" given to me by my past and late mother-in-law. I love to cook and garden and be with my grandchildren. My pet peeve is dishonest people. If I could do anything in this world, it would be to take a cruise to Alaska!
