I live in Richardson Texas, and am thrilled to say that my short stint in the Insurance industry ended in March of 2012. After being in the Food business for my entire career, I realized that my true calling was in that arena. I returned to food sales for a short time. While I do love food sales, I also love to cook. Friends and family have always encouraged me to open my own personal chef service, and I enthusiastically did that in October of 2013! I have targets of busy families, empty nesters, folks coming home from rehab (the caregivers often don't cook), the over '70 crowd (the kitchen is closed!)..I go over menus with my clients and deliver to them at pre arranged times during the week. I am passionate about good food and good wine. These days, I spend all day in my kitchen, so I am inspired to cook by almost anything; if it's to feed a shut-in, to try out new recipes on the two of us, to have an impromptu dinner, it doesn't matter. My husband of 27 years and I love to entertain. To tell what my favorite cookbook is would be like asking a mother of many who is her favorite child. My favorite child (we have only one) is a feisty red head with gorgeous blue eyes. I would adore going to a cooking school in Tuscany, then Greece, then spend time in the UK, Israel, Spain, Southern France and I think that would take longer than a month off...Pet Peeves? Waiters who auction your food. (who had the chicken?)
