"I have always loved cooking and entertaining. I am the wife of a Retired Air Force Officer and through our many travels I have learned to appreciate and prepare many international and American regional cuisines. I use fresh ingredients and love growing my own herbs. Variety is a major focus of my business as it contributes to healthy eating and provides my clients with a wide array of dining options. The old saying that "you are what you eat" is so true, so I strive to help people to eat healthier so they can be healthier!"
