RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I am a mother of 5, grandmother of 2. I have been cooking for 45 years and it is still my passion. I am married to a chef. My oldest son is also a chef. All my kids are major foodies. We really enjoy getting together for family holidays etc. And it is always all about the food and love & laughter. The baby in the icon is my 4 year old grandson, Oliver. The pic is me on my 59th b'day, my husband gave me those gorgeous pearls and we had a great evening. I also must mention the other lover in my life the very hairy, extemely beautiful, totally black cat named Spike; actually he is afraid of his own shadow so we gave him a tough guy name. One of my sons was a soldier in the Canadian military. I pray for all of our children who so bravely defend our way of life. I try to do something kind everyday. It really is nice to be nice. I detest pettiness, two faced people and dishonesty. I try to treat everyone I touch with the same respect I would like. Also I try not to sweat the small stuff. This is pretty much my survival philosophy. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/untitled.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z205/jubespage/stacky5.jpg"> <img src="http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r271/copperhorse58/Birthday%20and%20Celebration%20Images/FrenchCheeseoftheWeekClub.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r271/copperhorse58/ThymeSticker.jpg">
