Introduction I am married to a wonderful man Jess, whom I refer to as "cute butt", you would have to see to understand. I have two grown children. My son is 29 and lives in Austin and is in the music business. I'm not sure, but I believe he may be the hospitality chairman of the "Keep Austin Weird" program. My daughter is 27, lives in Carlsbad California, and previously served in the United States Coast Guard and is an artist She and her love John, gave birth to the love of our lives Harlow Michele who is 1 year old! Additionaly, I have 4 incredible step-children, I couldn't be more blessed! They are each very intelligent, articulate, and inspiring. I was an agent for Farmers Insurance 16 years and retired in 2010!!! I work out of my home as an Energy Healer I am passionate about cooking! I love salt water fishing, reading, home decorating and I truly enjoy my moments creating art. Thank you for coming along on my journey with cooking and life in general, it looks to be a crazy ride.
