I'm lucky to be able to combine my knowledge of media with my passion for cooking and baking. And while my job can introduce me to some fantastic names, my true passion is found in my galley kitchen. As an avid cook and a baker, my love for all things culinary comes from my mother who is a great cook. I have a fondness for collecting cookbooks - both old and new- and in addition to my overstocked bookshelves, I also have an ever growing file of recipe clippings, food essays and musings focused on all things in the kitchen. When I'm in my kitchen, my two dogs, Scout & Mimi are ever-present watching and waiting, eagerly hoping they'll be the lucky recipient of what may be on the menu.
