I live in the Midwest with my husband, cat and two dogs in the 1890's home we have restored. Our favorite spot is the front porch on long summer Sundays, sipping wine and nibbling my latest creation. When not at home, we're off traveling the world, sampling wine and food wherever we go! <br>(although our list of want-to-go destinations still outnumbers the places we've been!) We love to entertain our friends and family and share good food, drink, and great conversation well into the night! <br> <br>I have run my own catering business for the last 8 years or so, and have also worked as an ESL tutor and 911 Dispatcher.
