About me

I LOVE to cook! I am an identical twin and my sister swears that I got all of the cooking genes! Recently, my twin went to a wedding shower with her Mother-in-Law, and won a really great Italian gift basket. She turned to her Mother-In-Law and said, "Great! My sister will know EXACTLY what to do with this thing!". LOL!!

I love to get together with my Aunt Pearl and share recipes, and just recently was selected as a runner-up in a cooking contest sponsored by a grocery store chain - yay!

I am a former world-ranked tennis player, and certified teaching tennis pro. There are few things in life that give me greater joy than cooking for family and friends, and sharing my love for tennis.

Life is such a gift when you can wake up and know you are doing what you love. <3

Cooking Influences

My sister Colette and my Aunt Pearl, definitely.

      Thanks for following me and leaving a comment. In browsing through your recipes I am certain I will try them and look forward to future posts you add to CES. Before I retired from Aerospace I frequently traveled to the Cape on business. I never could get used the flatness of the terrain.

      Best Regards,

          ChaCha - I am delighted to know you! Thanks for linking up with me here - I imagine we have much to share and much in common. My meatballs are the size of tennis balls, but other than that, I've have no further experience with the sport (although I love the tennis scene in A Good Year). I look forward to sharing recipes and suggestions with you and wish you all the best in your every endeavor! - Amos
