I grew up around great cooks as a youngster. Each left me with a love of entertaining, and offering foods in our family gatherings. I am a Registered Nurse. My hobbies include collecting antique glassware and angels, reading, cooking, movies, crafts, quilting and gardening. I love spending time with my children and their activites. I tend to gravitate towards the outdoors. I have three children, two sons and a daughter. My favorite chef is Gordon Ramsey. He's a hoot!
