I was born in Berlin Germany, married an American and came to America. We have 2 grown daughters. I love to read, do arts and crafts (have taught both) and am considered by many to be a gourmet cook as my mother was. My bumper sticker reads: Love People. Cook them Tasty Food.:-) I have taught cooking classes through the University's Senior Adult Continuing Ed. Program since 2004.I collect cook-books and will never live long enough to cook all the tagged recipes. I am Host of an Ethnic Forum on another site.
