I have always been interested in cooking and food. This started when I was just a young child and would cook for my family and friends. My love of cooking continued throughout my life. I always regretted not taking the opportunity to attend culinary school, so I always say that I am a frustrated wanna be chef.
I continue to share my love of cooking by entertaining our family and friends. My husband and I have been through many health issues over the last 7 years and I find that I turn to cooking as a way to deal with some of these challenges. It is very therapeutic for me.
My husband has been a fine wine collector for many years. One of the most important aspects of cooking is finding the right wine to use in a dish as well as to pair with the finished product. I look forward to sharing some of the wines I use to cook as well as the ones we pop the cork on to drink!
I love to travel. Our most recent adventure was to France and Spain. We had never been to Spain, but absolutely fell in love with the country, especially Barcelona. What a beautiful city! The food was phenomenal and the market there was breathtaking! My favorite place is still France and in particular, the South of France. I do not think there is a prettier place on earth! And certainly, the food is pretty amazing too!
I cannot get enough of cookbooks, food magazines and some of the cooking shows. I prefer French cuisine, but enjoy cooking and eating many other types of food as well. As with many other food bloggers, I guess I am obsessed with food and cooking.
I now look forward to sharing some of the best things in cooking that I have found through travel, knowledge of wines, time spent in the kitchen and learning along the way.
I live in the Atlanta area and share a home with my husband and our loveable Tibetan Terrier.
I hope you will wander and come back often!
