About me



Small Town Girl at heart.  The last of five children who grew up around the family diner. Happily married for 23 years and the mother of two teenagers. I juggle a full time job with major responsibilities with taxi cab service for the kids, basketball mom in the winter and Baseball in the spring.   Always enjoyed cooking and now so does my husband!


We have a passion for great food, traveling to sunny spots and enjoying a really great Chardonnay.  We really enjoy the last one when we are with our peeps.  In the summer it is best enjoyed sitting around our gas firepit out on the patio where our neighborhood peeps tend to find us.  In the fall is when we take great weekend trips with our foodie friends to either the area wine trails or even longer trips to Napa and Sonoma Valley.  


About 12 years ago we started a dinner club with three other couples that meets every other month or so.  The host couple select the entire menu and send out assignments while preparing the main course.  From these dinners we have had the opportunity to try a lot of new and interesting dinners.  This has continued on with a few substitutes along the way and a change in one of the couples.  I believe that this has helped us all to be better cooks.  


So, here I am 2 years into blogging, with a couple of followers.  Some people might give up but I look at it as a way to keep the creative juices flowing.
