Hi All, I live in Sunny Southern California. I love to cook and bake since I was a child. My Granny Markus and mom were great cooks. One of my favorite cookbooks is Better Homes & Gardens. Years ago as a single parent I taught my two daughters how to cook and bake. My favorites past times are the symphony, plays, cooking, baking, antique shopping and watching classic movies. My family pets, Honey our rescued Tabby, Mustang Sally female feral Tabby and Roxy our NAIDog - She is smart! Cooking is therapeautic for me and I love to share my recipes!
