I've relocated to Nashville from Louisiana lived with family for awhile but in my own place in Hermitage, TN . My mother collected cookbooks and I've continued her passion! My favorite cookbook is from my mom, I picked her brain for all her recipes, before she went to heaven. Had fun deciphering if the handful she showed was a cup, or just enough to cover bottom of pot would be WHAT! I now work at a large hospital in the Reference Lab and have people already drooling over the things they hear I can cook!!!! Love the ocean, walking on the beach, or in the woods and mountains, anything to do with water. Like doing a lot of different crafts for my church, sewing,quilting, traveling and of course COOKING!
