Here, you will find conversations from my kitchen that go beyond cooking. The ones we have with friends and a glass of wine, a cup of cha or over a hot chocolate - huddled for hours on our favorite spots around the kitchen island. Perhaps we talk about food, family or celebrations, parenting, Common Core, or even bullies. Perhaps we talk about art and creativity.

 

This space will be dedicated to those conversations I love to have with friends.

 

Join me, listen in, argue with me, or chime along - which conversations resonate with you more?
