Awards from Friends

01 March 2008 4 comments

A stay-at-home mom of two. Loves to cook and bake. Brave enough to try new recipes and not afraid of failure. I took after my mom who is a wonderful cook. I'm lucky to have a husband who is not afraid to try anything (well, almost anything LOL). He's my proverbial guinea pig, a handsome one at that. :o)
I was born in Dapitan City, my mom's hometown and grew up in Pasig City, which is my dad's hometown. I migrated to the USA in 1989 and first lived in the San Francisco Bay Area where I met my husband of 11 years. I am currently living in the east coast.
If you have any questions, recipe suggestions or what not, you can reach me at that yahoo place through KUSINERAUSA.

I would like to thank my friends for these awards, it is very much appreciated! :) Thank you Mareng Amy, Mareng Lanie, Liza and Bless. (I hope I did not forget anyone.)
