I'm from Lansing, Michigan but reside in Winter Park, Florida. I've been with the Holiday Inn now for 25 years. I bartend very very part time and still enjoy it. I had my first and only child at the ripe age of 40 and love being a Mother. I collect cookbooks and could sit and look at them all day. My main passion is cooking and entertaining for friends and family. I enjoy watching their faces when they try something that I have prepared and put so much love and time into. My Pet Peeve: closed minded people that say they don't like something before they even give it a chance. My Motto: LIVE LOVE and COOK!!
