Cooking In the Jungle
A Food Blog From A
Costa Rican Hideaway
I'm jumping in. I'm not your mother's blogger, oh wait I am. So I thought at 65 I know a little about cooking and baking. I am ready to share my sweet life here in the jungle of Costa Rica. My home away from home. My outside cooking area, eating area, living area. The "rancho" as it's called here in Costa Rica. I live here with my surfer husband of 44 years. We are retired from California, born and raised. I cook quite often. If I get bored, I bake and then try to give my goods away. I also sell baked goods to some cafes and folks around here. We really don't need to eat all that sugar.
I learned to cook from my husband's Grandma, Marie, who was from Italy. So of course I love to make Italian food and we love Mexican food also. But I will try to cook anything. Everything I make has a piece of Grandma Marie in it. More about her later.
