Born in Victoria I have been a proud Minnesotan and huge hometown Prince fan since day one but that has not kept me from travelling to Japan, China, Italy, Argentina, Uruguay, the Netherlands, Belize, Canada and soon to Spain and France! France is especially exciting because bubbles and french fries are probably the best food and wine combination ever paired. This might also be one of the reasons I love to run! Running proves the perfect balance to my love of cooking and entertaining family -not least my husband and two little boys, Graham and Leo. As to pets, we keep chickens and what started as 6 has grown to 18 so who knows what will come of our little homestead!
