Scottish and German mother and grandmothers taught me to cook and bake. Dad taught me to fish, fillet, and grill. I've traveled a lot internationally and love spicy food. Very much into seasonings and herbal remedies: Kraut Hexe roughly translates to Herb Witch. If you ever visit Santa Fe, the Cooking School is friendly and fantastic! Favorite Santa Fe restaurant: Harry's Roadhouse. Favorite Detroit area restaurant: Mr. Paul's Chop House.
