Favorite thing to do at home?

Cooking, another passion of mine, because I enjoy creating new recipes for my family. I also constantly move around my furniture. I also like to create a different look for different seasons. To relax, I love to take a bath and spend time in my beautiful Master Bathroom.

I don’t have a specific dish that I prefer, I use the best ingredients possible and create my own recipes. Roasting fish, meats, making pasta, and creating delicious salads.
