Helaine Ferebee

I am a 57 year old who loves to cook!  I have a life partner of 33 years, a 25 year old son, too many cats, 4 dogs, a snake and a parrot.  We have a small home but we have lots of love to give.  I want to create a space to share recipes and talk about my favorite subject....FOOD!  I'm new to all this blogging stuff, but I hope to get better at it through trial and error.  Hopefully there won't be a whole lot of error going on, lol!  

I have been disabled for over 12 years with a combination of Lupus, Crohn's disease, CREST syndrome, Sjogren's syndrome, Reynaud's phenomenon, Antiphospholipid syndrome, Autoimmune hypothyroidism and psoriasis.  My days are sometimes challenging, but I'm hanging in and trying to live the best life I can in spite of the difficulties, which are many, some days.  

If I can do something better, or you'd like me to comment or blog on something that interests you, please let me know.  I really want to do the best I can and I can only do that if you tell me what I need to know about this new venture I'm on.

Thanks so much for reading this and here we go...!!!

Welcome! I look forward to following your quest! It will be magical when you finally discover ...more
