I am a native New Orleanian who is primarily French, Irish, English, and Spanish. I have a degree in Chemistry and work for the Federal Government. I am married to a college Chemistry professor and we have two cats. In my free time, I tutor math and science, paint, restore antiques, garden, and sew. Living in New Orleans has taught me a real appreciation for food. Since cooking is a real passion for me, I have probably a hundred cookbooks. The only thing I can say that I don't like about my life is that I have to watch my weight.
