<p>I'm a native Floridian. I love to cook and since going on disability a few years back I'm able to spend more time in kitchen. I love to experiment in the kitchen. I worked in communications for the majority of my working career with a short stint in banking right out of high school while in college. My elderly mother and I live together with 3 dogs. I worked with a dog rescue for many years but had to give it up due to health reasons. My mother has to be the all time champion picky eater so it's hard to please her. My screen name comes from the best dog I've ever owned...Tabasco</p>
