About me

Gender Female
Location Coronado, CA, United States
Introduction Welcome to There's a Newf in My Soup, one of my creative outlets originally started to share our culinary themed summer Concerts in the Park. Since then, I've participated in various cooking groups like Daring Cooks, Daring Bakers, and French Fridays with Dorie, but spend most of my time cooking from my growing collection of cookbooks and magazines, or recreating a dish I've enjoyed at a local restaurant. I live on the beautiful resort island of Coronado, just across the bridge from San Diego. Trapper is my 160 lb. Newfoundland (born in December 2011). He is well known around the island and makes frequent appearances on the blog and There's a Newf in My Soup's Facebook page where he has built his own fan club. In my free time, I enjoy spending quality time with Trapper, traveling, wining and dining, cooking for friends and family, writing and photography. I'm an attorney, freelance food photographer ( and writer/photographer for Wine & Dine San Diego and Coronado Lifestyle magazine. For photography services, please contact me at
