Originally from California, I've considered Tennessee my home for over 20 years. As a teen and young adult I loved to cook and explore creative food ideas. Now in my mid forties I have a growing interest in cooking once again. Starting off easy I am focused on becoming the grand cook of my youth. I have three young adult children and two young grand children. I remain active and creative for them. After all, as a grandparent I am responsible for adding fun and creativity into their lives so they can pass it on. I am a friendly and open person. Easy to get to know, I answer all questions honestly. I enjoy writing, birding, cooking, photography, and homemaking. I love life and look forward to each day.
