I've been cooking since I was old enough to stand on a chair and help my Mom and grandma. I'm married with 3 grown children. Only 1 of whom still lives in our home town. I'm the "mommie" to the cutest Golden Retriever in the world and a sweet faced Boxer/St. Bernard mix. As an empty nester it's been difficult learning to cook for just my husband and me. Some things are meant to be made in volume! In that sense I am a reasonably new cook. I took up golf in the Summer of 2006. I really enjoy it. My husband has been a wonderful teacher. We are also very active members of our church. We thank God daily for all our blessings. What an Awesome God we have!
