I am a wife and mother of three children - all in their 20's. I love cooking, gardening, nature, photography, needlework and music. I work in Washington, D.C. I am from San Francisco, CA originally and lived in the New Orleans, LA area for over 20 years. My husband and I now live in Northern VA. I really miss the food in Louisiana, but I've taken plenty of Louisiana recipes and cooking techniques with me.
