I live in Connecticut. I am co-authoring a cook/gift book "Coifed to Cook: How she wore her hair while roasting artichokes" with writer Irene Sherlock.

Cooking for family and friends feeds my passion.

A few of my favorite foods are pasta, olives and cheeses. Often, my favorite meal is what I am enjoying at the time!
