I cook, therefore I am, bigger.

Food, family, friends have been the focus of my life for as long as I can remember; mix in a lot of wine, a good measure of laughter, a spattering of tears and you get memories wrapped up like pigs in a blanket.
Italian, French and German heritage can only add to the mirth and girth as the years keep padding along.
But at the heart of it all is love, no beginning, no end and no excuses needed. I could be thinner, healthier, richer but I could not have had a better life; at sixty-five, I am still working, still laughing, still feeding the multitudes and loving every bite of the apple. Seriously, the five basic food groups sustain me: sugar, salt, butter, alcohol and dark chocolate. Okay, I could live with just the Champaigne and Trufles; all right, all right, just pass the Trufles and leave me alone.
