I am a writer by nature, although not by employment. Ah, to write is my dream and I know I will make it big some day. In the meantime I love spending time with my daughter and grandsons, friends and other family. And I love cooking for them all. I've lived many places, including Italy for three years and I learned so much while I was there. I grew up in a household that encouraged me to try just about every type of food and so I'm always game for new things!
