Pretty sure I was born to wander! This was confirmed the day my 4th-grade teacher pulled down the world map for our first geography lesson. I was hooked! This was about the same time I first made tarragon chicken to earn my Girl Scout cooking badge — one of my prized achievements in those days! These tw0 passions still motivate me today, and wherever we travel, I am always collecting new recipes and cooking ideas to share with family, friends and my food column Lamorinda Weekly readers, as well as new places, to visit for those who love to travel!

I was lucky enough to have a mom who allowed me to cook and experiment in the kitchen. Kudos to Grams! She gave me free rein, with the one caveat there would be no box mixes of any kind in our house. That was fine with me! The scratchier, the better! This way I actually learned how to cook. When I was a young mother, I also encouraged my three kids to get active in the kitchen. Today, all of my kids enjoy cooking and entertaining. This makes me exceptionally happy because I truly believe a happy home begins in the kitchen!
