A little bit about me...

I have been visiting here for a couple of years now and I want to thank you all for great tips and recipes. I have been cooking since I was 8 years old with my grandmother(mother's side) and my aunts (father's side). My maternal grandmother was from Puerto Rico,my maternal grandfather from Spain.My paternal grandparents are both from Sicily.That could be why I have such a passion for cooking and baking-many wonderful childhood memories in the kitchen.Alot of people claim my husband Jimmyof 26 years is a brave man to have married me with so much latin blood.He sleeps with one eye open- what can I tell you!! We have/had 3 children-our oldest son Jymm passed 6 years ago at the age of 18,my second son Dennis is 21 and my daughter Kiersten is 18. My sons loved to cook- my daughter has no interest whatsover- her only recipe is for jello shots and that she acquired at college Well that's about it-Thank you all again for educating me,inspiring me, making me laugh and humoring me- You're all terrific!!

I don't think there is anything worse in the world than losing a child. My deepest heart felt sympathy for you, Vicki!!!
You didn't make anyone uncomfortable!! If you ever need to let loose or blow off some steam, just pm any one of us that you think you can be comfortable with. We are all family here and you fit right in.
I didn't even realize that you hadn't introduced yourself yet. LOL
You fit just like a glove in here. I have enjoyed your posts as much as everyone else!!

So sorry to hear about the loss of your son. But glad you are happy here. You've been here quite a while longer than I have and how in the world did you accumulate so few posts in that time. I suppose you weren't as verbal as I am. I seem to have an opinion on most everything. I hope you find lots to comment on in the future. It is nice to get everyone's take on threads.
