I have had a love of cooking for decades, which has given me a wide variety of cooking experiences. Ethnic cooking, i.e Mexican, Italian, Greek, Armenian, Swedish, Irish, Regional USA, and more. Small and large group meals, everyday to gourmet type dishes. I have striven to add new information, techniques and innovations in my cooking repetoire of skills on an ongoing basis. I love to watch the cooking and baking shows and have added some of the dishes to my menus. For example, stuffed pork and stuffed turkey rolls. I have not taken very many cooking classes, however, I have had the experience of cooking with others, in learning new dishes or recipes.

I began basic sewing as a preteen, and had sewing classes in high school, however, most of my sewing has been from experience over several decades. As a young girl I began with constructing clothing for myself, such as: blouses, dresses, and pajamas. Then as a young woman with two daughters and one son, I made clothes for them during their school years. I have also done sewing for party and specialty clothing, i.e wedding, graduation, formal. I have experience with different types of sewing styles and techniques, for example, french sewing. I am something of a perfectionist in my endeavors, I have a home based sewing and alterations business, and I am currently constructing baby and adult quilts and casual wear for women.
