About me

Occupation writer
Location Portland, OR, United States
Introduction I call Portland, Oregon home but reserve a soft spot in my heart for Whidbey Island, Washington. I love the IDEA of running on wooded trails and early morning yoga classes. I love English breakfast tea with a drop of honey. I love to wander the aisles of Powell’s and gently touch the spines of unread books. I love pumpkin pie for breakfast. I love the sound and smell of the Pacific Ocean. I love to laugh… my own jokes. I love a made bed in the morning and throw pillows straightened in the evening. I love my sweetie, my children and the start of the school year. I love lentil soup and a deep, red cab. I love the way the French language looks on the written page. I love to speak the French language...although, I'm not sure French people can actually understand me. I love to cut the grass with my push mower. I love opening day of the Portland Farmer’s Market. I love Honeycrisp apples from Hood River and caramelized shallots with fresh, green beans. I love to eat my way through the seasons. I love food. Learning about food. Trying new food. Talking about food. Writing about food. Cooking food. Eating food. Sharing food.
