About me

Occupation Tender of My Hearth and Home
Location Reno, NV
Introduction My kitchen is the heart of my home. It's the room everything else revolves around, where my love for family and friends is made into something tangible. The pleasure of cooking for me is seeing food bliss in the eyes of someone I cooked for: I love you, let me feed you. I'm an eclectic cook: some days I can't resist the siren call for the slow, delicious dance of a time-consuming recipe; other days I cook like a Tasmanian Devil with a deadline to beat. My tastes run from healthy to devastatingly decadent. But always, ALWAYS, I want my food to be good. So stay a little while my friend, and let me feed you...
Interests They're rather like a patchwork quilt, little bits of this and that sewn together to endlessly distract me: cooking of course, reading, alternative medicine, midwifery, rapelling, fashion, movies, music, traveling, art
