I grew up in San Diego, but left there when I married in 1961. I've lived in many places, but mainly in either California or Upstate NY where my heart still remains. My husband and I have three wonderful children of which two remain in NY and one now lives in TX. We live in a mobile home park for retired folks. Kind of makes me feel old. We stay active by swimming laps 3 mornings out of the week at 5:00 am. It's a great time of the morning to be alive.
Everyone has a favorite cooking corner where the miracles happen and the messes are made. This is mine. I love my little country kitchen; it's the only touch of country I have left other than my very tiny garden.
