Cooking is a major part of my life and I wouldn't be fulfilled without it. Of course, we all have to eat, but the main part of cooking for me is entertaining, sharing fun and flavorful foods with great friends. Dinner parties, happy hours and well, most anything to do with food is where I begin to enjoy.

My artsy side is a craving for art, painting and photography. I recently went to a wine and paint party. That was great fun but a challenge to finish an acrylic painting in less that 3 hours. After several courses in enhancing photography I'm okay with what I do but could learn much more.
