San Jose, California is where I grew up.

I learned to cook from watching.  My grandma was a great baker.  Seeing her turn ordinary ingredients into something extraordinary (a cake!), seemed like 'spinning straw into gold'.  Her many recipes made a big impression on me.  She showed me the basics and rewards. ;)

I am excited to make healthy family meals and desserts!  Providing fresh home-cooked meals is an opportunity to make new friends, hone skills, and express creativity through food as 'nutritional art'.

For fun, I teach an art class on making miniature doll house food out of polymer clay, and other stuff thats non-edible.  It's delightful to make the colors and preparation, each one takes on a personality of it's own.  As a hobby, I enjoy swimming, and ballroom dancing or any kind of dancing!!
