Smile I'm new

I'm Dianne & I stumbled upon this website. I like it! I've never been a gormet chef, but am a good cook and LOVE comfort foods. Bring on the chili, fried chicken with mashed potatoes & cream gravy, mac & cheese, anything chocolate, casseroles & soups of all kinds!!! I have lived in many different states and enjoyed trying the regional cooking. I will admit that I didn't try fried chicken feet when I lived in S. Carolina, but have eaten a lot of things other people might consider strange. I'll try pretty much anything, I just didn't have an opportunity to try the chicken feet. Boiled peanuts just didn't quite hit the spot!
I'm mom to Derrick & David. Derrick is 22 & is my Down syndrome sweetheart. David is 36 and a terrific son and good person. Hubby Ken has Parkinson's and I stay home to care for him. We have been in Oregon for 22 months and truly love the great northwest----fresh salmon, apples, cherries, all kinds of lovely veggies and so much more.
I'm happy to have joined this group!! Di

Welcome! Remember that we not only do food, but go on our line where we give each other moral support for all kinds of the turns life throws our way. It sounds like you have your hands full, and we'll be there for you.
