There is very little that I enjoy more than cooking for friends and family. The dinner table is sacred to me. Even as a harried young mother of five children (including two sets of twins), I always made time to prepare a meal and have it served at the table. I show love with food, as my mother and grandmother before me. And I love to share my love of cooking- which is why I created my newspaper column and this website. I hope that you will enjoy what you find here and I would love to hear from you about your own cooking adventures.
