Born and raised in Vermont, I now reside on the western border of Toronto, Ontario. It's beautiful here! With 5 children grown and gone, I have lots of time in my kitchen - just my husband & I to feed!! It keeps the neighbors happy as I'm constantly knocking at door's with a plate of goodies in hand! Previously a teacher of theraputic crafting & a chocolatier (Sweet Impressions in NB doing molds, carvings & individual chocolates), I am now designing needlework and loving it! I have a large cupboard of cookbooks, downsized when I moved into this condo (I did have an actual CLOSET of cookbooks!) I think nothing of curling up with a good cookbook read! My children enjoy the same and have large and varied collections of their own.
