Cooked professionally for many years; then went on to other things because the hours were not very good for raising children! Recently married to the love of my life who also happens to be an amazing cook! The kitchen is even more fun than before! I have two grown children and two grown step-daughters. Even better, I now have six grandchildren! When I am not in the kitchen (or at work), I love to garden and read. Herbs are my favorites with flowers coming in a close second. I will read almost anything - I am the curious sort.
