About Me

Thank you for stopping by my little site. I am a journalist who cherishes all things that are good for my mind and body..writing, books, good food, healthy cooking, decent wine and CHOCOLATE. I believe in healthy habits, physically and mentally. I am a lover of classic literature and classic people. I am also a strong advocate of public education and improving the child welfare system in America.

Me and my beautiful daughter, “mini me,” will offer you some recipes to heal your body and heart. Connecting with my girl in the kitchen fills so many voids, I am happiest creating a beautiful meal with her.

I will also closely follow a cause dear to my heart — children in foster care in America. I was a foster child in New York State and I hope my past experiences can help others who work with children in the system. While the system does have well-intentioned advocates trying to bring reform, millions of American children are left in the cold. Please check in, educating ourselves about these issues can maybe initiate change.

Here and there I will add some prose/poetry as I explore new forms and delve into whatever literature peaks my curiosity. Enjoy and thanks again for stopping in!
