Hi Katherine, I live in Santa Clarita, CA just 45 minutes north of Los Angeles. My sister lives in Redwood City. I frequently travel up and down the coast. Heading to Redding in June, followed by trip to Mammoth, and September I'll be in Napa. I do love California! But I would cancel all the trips for a trip to Savannah, Georgia!
So would I, I went to Savannah 23 years ago (or 2 BC , before children) for 3 days and it was so beautiful! We toured historic homes and stayed in a beautiful B&B in one of the old town Squares. We didn't get to take a carraige ride because it rained on us that day. The historic disrtict there is so beautiful, I'm glad it survived the Civil War. But I was born and raised on the west coast (San Diego). I go home and visit whenever I can, which is not often enough.
I was born in Bakersfield, raised in the Sunland/Tujunga area, where I met the hubs, we then moved to Oklahoma where the hubs went to college, we then moved to Clarksville, TN where the hubs served in the Army, then we moved backed to Tujunga, then we moved to Phoenix, Arizona, then from there, the industry my hubs works in, took us to Everett, Washington, then after my dad passed, we moved to Lancaster, CA (in the Mojove Desert, just down the road from Edwards Air Force Base) and we lived there for ten years. We moved here, to Louisville, Kentucky when the hubs changed jobs within the same industry that he's been in for over 25 years now. Along the way, I learned different way each part of the country cooked, learned something new in each place.. ex: I've NEVER eaten grits until I moved here almost 2 years ago! I woke up tonight with recipes running rampant through my head, and got a hankering for grits... so, added some cream cheese, some butter, some colby/jack and some bacon bits, made some coffee... and here I am, sitting here in KY typin' to y'all... this west coast girl is officially COUNTRY-fied!
Hey everyone~I'm in Orange County in Southern California. I love to find new recipes, ideas for cooking for others and just everyday tips and tricks for making life a little bit easier. Hope to hear from all of you~
