A Little Bit About Me…
I am passionate about all things food: eating it, writing about it, developing recipes with it, traveling to explore its origins. I’ve been a chef and cooking school director, traveling instructor and international researcher and trainer.
I’ve developed more than 18,000 recipes on a wide variety of subjects (especially if those subjects are sweet things) and have cooked and presented at the James Beard House twice.
Born in New Jersey with an attitude to match, I have a wicked sense of humor and have – as a hobby – done stand up comedy.
I was at Woodstock (the original, not the 50th anniversary) and saw the Beatles at Shea Stadium.
I’ve authored six cookbooks and had food columns in newspapers and magazines, and have played with food on major networks and public television as well as radio. Even had an award winning cable television cooking series!
Some time, when it’s raining and you’re wondering what to do, feel free to read my full bio. I’m humbled and appreciative that I’ve been able to accomplish so much.
At this moment in time, I’m a culinary consultant and caregiver for my husband who has Alzheimer’s—believing that Love Is Healthier Than Kale!
It’s my life. Plan B.
