God is good! Life is good! I am very blessed with a sweet ( Engimeer) hubby who takes very good care of me :-) I could live out of a suitcase due to my love of travel! Especially returning to Europe where I lived for a few years. I spend a grrrreat deal of time in Southern California because nearly EVERYone in my family has moved out there .

Months.; lived in Rome ,Italy a few years; taught Italian language; Italian cooking; vegetarian cooking;" down & dirty, quick' easy,30 minutes or less cooking" and a class called "So!
