I'm a recently retired nurse looking forward to cooking whatever my heart desires. Being from NM I do a lot of southwestern cooking and love spice. I am always ready to try a new recipe, especially if it is unusual to me, like from another country, or ingredients we wouldn't normally eat. I have three children, one son and two daughters. My son, the oldest, lives here in town and has two daughters. My middle daughter lives in Washington state and has three children. My youngest daughter Lisa lives in Chico Ca and has recently become a diabetic. She has 5 boys and one girl. The twins are 19 yrs old and live with me. They too like to cook and will eat anything I put in front of them. My granddaughter is married and has 3 children, also a set of twins, girls. She too lives in NM. I am also a dog lover amd presently have 5 dogs,4 live inside with me except for short trips outside for personal reasons, and a HUGE fellow (Hinze 57) which stays outside for the most part, unless it's super cold which often happens in the winter. I found I wasn't happy staying home after working for 40+ years in the medical field so now have a part time job which gets me out of the house 3 days a week and gives me a little extra spending money. A win win situation.
