I'm Rocquie and I'm married to Pritchard Parker. We live in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina, with our Jack Russell, Jill. I love food and I love to cook. I love everything about preparing meals. I like the planning of meals, love grocery shopping at all kinds of stores and markets, washing vegetables, slicing and chopping, stirring and measuring, listening to sizzling, smelling the aromas. Even washing dishes is pleasant--staring out the kitchen window, while my hands work in warm sudsy water.
