I live in sunny Southern California with my husband Jim, son William, and our Golden Retrievers Max and Marley. My profession as a school teacher allows me to enjoy my summers at home with my family and do what I like best, cook! We live in a great neighborhood where parties or barbeques are not uncommon. Brewing beer is also a neighborhood activity that brings us all together. Both my husband and I come from families that love to cook. I am looking forward to learning more about the Recipezaar Community!
