I am a single mother of two wonderful boys ages 9 and 15. While keeping up with my boys (or at least trying), I work full-time as a manager for risk management firm in Sacramento, California. My schedule is usually very busy...not much rest :)! I enjoy the outdoors, the sunshine (if you couldn't guess based on the public name), love to read, dance, and enjoy life in general. While growing up, my grandmother taught me how to get around in the kitchen. She was born in Italy and was an amazing cook. Cooking always seemed so easy when I watched her, but I soon learned that I needed a little practice. Nonetheless, I enjoy cooking a meal, whipping up an appetizer, or baking an amazing dessert. I usually try to fix healthy low-fat meals, but my boys are pretty picky and sometimes the low-fat meals don't taste so exciting. I try to fix one new dish each week to keep the monthly rotation of meals from getting too boring. For the most part, I try to keep it simple whether it be meals or just life in general!!!
I love all kinds of food...I am not all that picky. I love most seafood whether it be raw or cooked. I am a huge fan of Mexican food and believe that the spicier it is, the better. Fruits and veggies (except for okra and brussel sprouts) are a staple in my diet, and if the fruit is in some kind of pastry or dessert then that's a plus! I love anything with cinnamon or lemon...yummy! A nice margarita is always good too!
