I LOVE learning about other cultures & their foods. I am a wife, mother and nurse practitioner. I love trying new recipes, and I have an extensive cookbook collection. Another passion is getting to know people- what a patchwork quilt of a world we live in! My other varied interests include, but are not limited to the following: knitting/crocheting, sewing & quilting, scrapbooking, gardening, just about anything do-it-yourself, decorating, piano, foreign languages, and the list goes on.
