Well, I live on Lake Greeson in Southwest Arkansas. I work as a chef in a local restaurant, Gayle's Family Restaurant, that is owned by my family. I also own a catering company, Once Upon A Dream Catering. I like to play piano in my spare time (when I have it). I also like photography and antiques. I also collect vintage cookwares, appliances, and roasters. Oh, my favorite cookbook(s)...anything written by Emeril Lagasse or Julia Child. I also have to have my Professional Chef by The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY. I also like the cookbooks that are put together for fundraising groups and churches. They contain the best recipes. My passions? Food, Food, and Food. Pet Peeves? Diets and dieters. Never Trust A Skinny Chef!
