Most of my pre-married life was spent in Northern California in the San Francisco Bay Area with all the wonderful produce, sea food and wines that the region offers. Five of my teenage years were spent in West Africa with my family (medical missionaries). On our way back to the US we traveled extensively throughout Europe and after marrying my Navy husband, we were moved to Asia. All this said because these travel experiences greatly influenced my interest in cooking and willingness to try new foods.
I've enjoyed trying new recipes from this site and learning about the person who posted it. There are some crazy, wonderful and talented people out there, not to mention knowledgeable and gracious. It's been great fun participating in the Tag and Swap games.
Like many others, I've collected hundreds of cookbooks. My favorites are from places that I've visited around the world as well as my first, given to me by my mother when I went off to college - "The Graham Kerr Cookbook" by the Galloping Gourmet. My oldest cookbook was given to me by my grandmother "The Boston-School Cook Book" by Fannie Merritt Farmer circa 1896.
I'm an Interior Designer but also taught Weight Watchers for about twenty years. It's tough loving to cook and bake and still keep at a healthy weight!
