Thank you all for you kind welcomes.Losing a child is still unfathomable top me and it's been 6 years.But, I have learned that you keep going ,you learn to live differently and by God help those who are faced with the same tragedy. There is ALOT of therapeutic value in cooking and I find when I am missing my son Jymm the most I will unconciously be preparing his favorite meals and goodies.
Robo- I thoroughly enjoy cooking recipes from my heritage but, love trying other ethnic dishes as well. I haven't had too much luck with Chinese or Dutch cooking for that matter- my husband is from a dutch background and it seems o me everything starts with a ton of butter or some other fat. His Mom was a horrible cook so there was no help there!!!!But I will keep searching!!!! Love and energy, Vicki

Hi Vicki. I'm so glad you joined us !
I'm so sorry about Jymm. Sounds
like the two of you were pretty close.
You can always lean on us when you're
having a bad day though. Don't ever
forget that.

Yes I have seen you around but it is great to meet you officially!!
Thanks for telling us about yourself... So you have a bit of Siciliana in you!! Wonderful!! It is home to so many delicious foods... also a beautiful place!! it made me sad to know that one of your boys is no longer with you, but always remember he is watching over you somewhere up there... probably drooling at the goodies you are cooking..
I hope you can hang with us more often when you can!!

Urmaniac-I have enjoyed so many of your posts- you're just great!!!My son Dennis did a summer semester at Oxford University last year and was able to get to Rome for a weekend- He LOVED it and wants his father and I to go before and I quote "we get too old"Granted I'm 45 and my husband 46 but I don't think our best years are behind us LOL!!!My other son Jymm was my greatest inspiration when it came to cooking- he loved just about everything and would bring people over to have me cook for them.Jymm had suffered from depression his entire life and was diagnosed at 6 years old with severe depressive disorder and when he was 18 years 1 month and 4 days old ended his agony.Of course that's when it began for the rest of us- sorry shouldn't have gone here maybe. Thanks again.Love and energy, Vicki
