She moved to San Diego County in 1996 with her husband, Gary, and their son and daughter. She now has 2 beautiful grandkids who live in Los Angeles county. They love spending time with them, but it has been a little more difficult now, with social distancing, so they have adapted by texting and doing Zoom calls. Her favorite hobby is photography. She also enjoys taking pictures and submitting them to the San Diego County Fair and other contests. Due to the present circumstances, she is not able to go out and take a lot of pictures so, she spends a lot of time in the kitchen, experimenting and preparing new recipes. Luckily, her husband enjoys her cooking, so this encourages her to continue to try new recipes whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and of course, last but not least, desserts. Bon appetit!
