Thank you for accepting me as a new member. I am looking forward to finding new friends who share the same likes I do. I am from Paradise, California, the town which recently was destroyed by a forest fire. We plan to rebuild when possible and for now are living in a camper on someone's private property. It is rather difficult cooking when you have no: mixing bowls, wooden spoons, measuring devices, knives...… I have now replaced many of those things but space is very tight. It is a challenge but I am determined to always have, "from scratch home cooked meals."
I am retired and share this little camper with my adult son and his two children. The children love Grandma's meals.

Welcome, genie.

I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your home, but you have to admire Californians' will to perservere and rebuild.

I wish you lived closer. We could restock your kitchen with stuff from our old house (which had 2 small kitchens).

Again, welcome.

Welcome to DC...

Stay strong... Learning to do without what you are used to, in cooking, will be a character builder.. Best to you...

Yes, you are a food genie. To be able to continue on after what you and your family have been through is like working magic. If there is anything we can do to help make your life easier, please let us know. Here is hoping we all get to know each other better. God bless you from a fellow grandmother.

How old are your grandchildren and what kind of food do they like to eat?

Welcome to DC. we heard about the fires in Paradise California on the news and it sounded horrific. I'm so sorry you had that to deal with.

Paradise California! My heart turned over when I read that. I repeat all the good wishes everyone already said, and we're glad you found us. It's an honor to have you with us.
