Valerie Hopper, (born in Abilene, Texas), enrolled in the culinary program at Texas State Technical College in August 2015. My favorite interests include outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, and spending time with my family. Cooking is an area where I find to be both pleasurable and relaxing. These items on the menu are some of our favorite dishes we enjoyed while we lived stateside and overseas.
