PopcornGirl12 in a Nutshell

I am a somewhat middle aged,  happily married woman who was ready for something “new” to do with my life. After the company I did data work for closed (July 2009) and not wanting to go back into an office or retail job I had finally decided on something I can do that I enjoy.  This blog! It will help me to not write the cookbook I’ve been talking about for a while now! This is much easier than writing a book! I am getting to know so many fellow bloggers who have incredible sites! It’s fantastic all the food out there! In March 2012 I finally had to actually get a real job again and have been working for a great company in West Palm Beach. Being its a regular job I have less time to write my blog so it won’t be published as much as before. 

I live in Hobe Sound, FL with my husband John and now 1 cat Gus. RIP Toonces, we miss you and love you dearly. We have lived here in sunny Florida since November 2000. We are  Long Island, NY natives and that part of us will never change. We do not regret moving down here one bit though! What’s to regret? Sunshine and warm temps (most of the time) and no snow to shovel or ice to scrape! Ok an occasional hurricane or two shows up but they are rare. Not freezing while putting up Christmas decorations is always a good thing!

I do not have any children of my own but I do have a stepson (John) and daughter-in-law (Nicole) who made me a grandma back in 2008! Unreal! I have 8 nieces and 3 nephews!  They are all adorable and wonderful and range in age from  3-15. Needless to say they keep us all busy!

Whenever we get a chance John and I love to travel. We’ve taken many cruises and love exploring any chance we get. A favorite place is the family house up in Naples, Maine. We even traveled for our April 2004 wedding in Las Vegas! Cousins Linda and Kim were there to share in the occasion! Another adventure!

So besides travel, I love to cook (and eat) as you will see. I try to make new recipes as much as possible! The only thing I do not like about cooking is cleaning up!! This fall marked our 10th visit to the Wine & Food Festival at EPCOT. Again, food! I am food obsessed to say the least.

So enjoy the blog and feel free to comment! Let me know if there are any recipes you want to see and I will do my best to get them on here! Thanks again and mangia!

  1. You guys are funny about the whole “going-back-to-work” thing. I wish I was independently wealthy and didn’t have to thing about pushing above & beyond at work…where/what did I do wrong??


  2. I was cleaning out my desk and realized I still have your gift card to whole foods I need to send you. Please e-mail me you mailing address. I know you said you had problems e-mailing me, I never received any e-mails so let me make sure you have the right address. It is damarispalmer {at} gmail.com


  3. I also love going on travels and doing some sight seeing. I love cooking and I would like to see some of your great recipes that I can try to cook. You have a great family even if it is only a step son you should be grateful.


  4. Its good to know that you are treating your step son just like your own kid. Kids needs love they are hungry for lit and it you give it to them they will give you back lots of unconditional love that will give you true bliss.
