I am a wife and a mother of two boys, one has flown the coop and one is on the way. My husband and I are both self-employed and most of the time I either don't want to spend hours in the kitchen or can't. When I do cook, I love to start early in the day and make something hot and delicious for lunch, then prepare a great dessert and finish the day of cooking with a great barbeque. We use our grill year-round here in sunny California. When it does rain I pull it under the patio. I love my beautiful horses and my cow dogs. And I love living in California's Gold Country and a small community where everyone helps you keep track of your kids and the air is fresh and clean.
