    About Me

    I'm a SAHM to adorable five year old boy/girl twins. I grew up in California where I could eat Mexican food every day and the produce was amazing! My husband grew up in Zambia, Africa and had a wonderful adventurous childhood. I love to listen to his stories. Shortly after we got engaged we moved to Augusta, Georgia and it was a fun adventure for us and we loved the change and adored going to the Masters golf tournament, but after two years we REALLY missed the west coast so we moved to Oregon. For five years I was more than thrilled to be near Mexican food once again and the produce was also fantastic. Now we live in upstate NY where there isn't any Mexican food (can you tell I like Mexican?) but we do have Italian and I love it! Now if I can do something about the snow!! I've been married for 13 years to a wonderful man who is everything I ever wanted and more. We love to travel, which we did a lot of before we had our wonderful babies five years ago. My husband and I love culture when we travel and so we try to stay away from the tourist spots. A few years ago my husband went to Saudi Arabia on business so I decided I'd go to Peru to see Machu Pichu and Cusco--by myself. It was an amazing trip and I can't wait to go there again. Given our love for Latin food we've traveled through Central and South America. I LOVE typical dishes, especially in Costa Rica, and I'm prefectly happy to eat rice and beans over and over again. We built our home two years ago and it's on 22 acres so we're busy most weekends gardening and enjoying the outdoors. My goal is to have a greenhouse like the one my husband built for me when we lived in Oregon.

    Favorite Foods

    I think it's obvious I adore Mexican food but I'll eat anything once. We collect French wine so I like to cook dishes that go with the wine instead of finding the wine that goes with the dish. I love Julie Child (may she rest in peace) and I hope to upload some of my favorite recipes of her on zaar. When my twins were babies I made all of their baby food from scratch. It's easy and so much cheaper than bottled food. We try to use Organic, especially with dairy and I have really good eaters so it's fun to cook and it gives me so much pleasure to make a great meal.
