Introduction I've been a serious cook from the time I took an introductory class in French cooking from Irena Chalmers in 1974. Since retiring, my husband and I have moved to our previous summer cottage in beautiful Lake Lure,NC. We have been adding on and building up for the last few years and now I have the kitchen of my dreams. We also spend part of our time in Florida. I love spending time with my beautiful granchild, Rachel and my wonderful Son and Daughter in-law. I want to share with you my favorite recipes and always evolving new ideas on cooking and entertaining.
Interests Cooking with a purpose, Making a beautiful home, Reading and learning, traveling to new places either on the back of my husband's motorcyle or by car or plane, fulfilling a dream to travel to Provence and take cooking classes at Julia Child's Mas.
Favorite Movies Something's Got to Give (For the stunning Interior Design), Chocolat, Dirty Dancing.
Favorite Music 50's and 60's, Raul Malo, Doo Wop, The Bryds, too many to name.
