I am a wife and mother. I am a daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. I am a priest and teacher. I grew up as a bookish, geeky country girl on a farm in rural north Alabama. I have lived in Alabama, Iowa, California (San Francisco Bay Area), Connecticut, and now South Carolina’s upstate.
I grew up surrounded by pine woods, cotton and soybean fields, goats, chickens, ponies, dogs, cats, and sundry others among God’s many legged (and a few no-legged) creatures. I was also surrounded by good cooks, good writers, and good books. I love to read and I love to write. I love to cook and to share my cooking adventures with others.
