Small Town Girl at heart with a love of travel. The last of five children who grew up around the family diner. Happily married for 28 years and the mother of two. One out of college and the other is working his way through it. I have a full time job with major responsibilities. 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 14 years ago we started a dinner club with three other couples that met 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 5 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 and a way to keep our recipes in one place.
