I live in the historic part of Chester,New York.I am a mother of 1,Aden hope,and enjoy it very much.I am a human resources administrator for a fragrance company, and my husband is the head chef of a very popular restaurant. For fun,I like to paint and well,cook.I enjoy trying out new recipes and making up my own.I love to experiment with food no matter what the results are. I would have to say my 2 all time favorite cook-books are the 2 my mom and her best friend Pat wrote.The first one is the Merriewold Cook book and the second one is The Merrie Old cook book. I would have to say my passion is cooking. My pet peeves are ignorant people and hatred. Last but not least if I had a month off I would take a cruise to Bora Bora and lounge around the beach while getting a great tan and eating great food.
