  • Hobbies & Interests

  • Favorite Activities

    I am an avid power walker.  Have to be with my love of cooking/baking!  I’m a freelance writer on many topics

  • Favorite Books

    love medical mysteries!

  • Favorite Music

    as a former musical theatre dancer-I love musical theatre and dance music

  • Interests

    Family first!  I’m married for 29 years, have 2 adult children-married (one almost) and 2 adorable little grandsons.  

    After that, I love to cook/bake, work tough crossword puzzles and power walk

I love to cook, I love to bake. Trouble is I have several jobs-paid and unpaid, a family with odd work schedules, grandkids and a very tight budget. Plus I have an auto-immune disease and several other conditions that sometimes make getting a good meal on the table, well, challenging.

h3. Does this sound exactly like you and your household?

I'm willing to bet it does. With that in mind, Yana and I have decided a column about healthy, quick and flexible eating would probably be something all of us here on fabulously 40 would like to read.

So, here I am. My credentials? I've had recipes published in 4 major magazines and the Orange County Register. I've been able to serve various tastes, food allergies and diet concerns with a good amount of success and now-I'm hoping to "spread" the knowledge and not our perspective middle-age backsides with some handy hints and recipes.

If anyone has ideas, menus or questions-please send me some private messages! If you're wondering how to accomplish a certain event in record time and ease, ask!

This column was created with all of us fabulously 40 and beyond women in mind, without you it will be nothing. With your input-we'll all learn how to get a great meal on the table quick and easy and with a lot of taste.

    • Hi Carine. I love the new profile photo!

      I hope I didn’t overstep when I posted my thoughts about the diet your daughter is on. I just don’t believe it’s very healthy and long term weight management is not the norm with it. I hope she is the exception.

      Have a great weekend, Carine. I hope your healing is swift and total recover happens in short order!

    • Hello my dear friend...,

      “Life is like a garden.
      And friendship like a flower.
      That blooms and grows in beauty.
      With the sunshine and the shower.
      How lovely are the blossoms.
      That are tended with great care.
      By those who work unselfishly.
      To make the place more fair.
      And like sunshine adds new fragrance.
      And raindrops play their part.
      Joy and sadness add new beauty.
      When there's friendship in the heart”


      May your day be filled with love,joy and happiness.
      With much love, BellaLina♥♥
