I live in Santa Barbara, CA with my husband, David and my little Yorkie dog, Kerry. We are one half miles from the ocean and enjoy going to the beach as much as we can. I am a social worker and work with people who have developmental disabilities, I love what I do. Cooking is something that I really enjoy and wish I had more time for. I like to cook meals in a short amount of time. I am good at whipping up a meal and creating one on my own without measuring anything. And it usually comes out very tasty. I do not like to make a receipe that has too many ingredients or that takes alot of time. It frustrates me to look at a receipe and find out that I need to buy a bunch of ingredients at the store.
