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. I love to cook for family and friends for special occasions and holidays. 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. Our family pets, Honey our rescued Tabby, Mustang our female feral Tabby, Roxy our NAIDog - She is smart! and Snoopy our adopted male beautiful Siberian Husky. Cooking is therapeautic for me and I love to share my recipes!
