I am originally from Texas. Whoop! Lived in Colorado for 8 years & now reside in Northern California. Still an Avalanche fan. The combination of music and cooking is truly a much needed stress reliever. I enjoy traveling & the outdoors. Art is another hobby of mine...drawing, painting, beading, etc. Enjoy taking photography, jewelry making, scrapbooking. My sister told me about this website - Her chef name is KimD. Check out her recipes. She is a fantastic chef!
