About / My interests:

This blog began as a reason and reminder to get the most out of life by doing my favorite things and sharing them. I’ve continued to visit new wineries, take time for the picnics I adore, and cooking and sharing the recipes I develop. I also make an entertaining Speaker about topics such as the farm-to-fork movement, simple, healthy cooking, and how to shop and cook locally.

My cookbook in progress

I plan to share about the absolutely delicious and unique foods grown and raised in California, particularly near my home in the San Joaquin Valley. I love sharing recipes reflecting our rich cultural heritage, and the simple, fresh, and healthy foods you would buy at a farmer’s market and how to cook them for your friends and family.

I currently live in Madera, in Central California, which is north of Fresno. I have easy access to San Francisco, Los Angeles and all the wineries and restaurants in between. I’ve lived throughout California and have had the pleasure and opportunity to get to know many regions extremely well.
