I live in the north west part of Florida with my husband and two wonderful boys. We love the pristine sugar white sandy beaches. I enjoy gardening, reading. Fishing with the family, camping, and entertaining. I collect sea shells and cookbooks. If I have to evacuate for hurricanes, I take my pets, photos, important papers, and my cookbooks. I have recipes that are hand written from my mother and grandmothers that cannot be replaced. My favorite cook is Paula Deen. I have all of her cookbooks. I love to watch her and her children on the Food Network. I also subscribe to her magazine.
