I was raised in a small beach town and now live at a high altitude. As long as I can see the mountains from our window, I can ALMOST live without hearing the waves late at night. I love to spend time with my family. DH and I have two wonderful kids and a ton of nieces and nephews we adore. Besides cooking,I also enjoy being creative and doing crafts. These passions are inherited from father, a wonderful, creative, down-home cook.
