My Mom is my inspiration and gave me my love for cooking & food. I am a self-professed cookbook addict with a collection that is growing by leaps & bounds (thanks to a wonderful husband that indulges me ~ he's in it for love and for the love of food and he says that it's cheaper than jewelry. He thinks Diamonds mean a Swiss Diamond saute pan!). I love to read recipes as my bedtime stories. I sometimes follow recipes but mostly look at them for inspiration and a bit of guidance. My closet addiction is bakeware; tart pans and the like bring me the same kind of pleasure that Manolo Blahnik brings to a shoe addict. I also cook for my furry little son his dinner, cookies and ice cream treats.
My husband & I run our own creative marketing business ~ inspiration & brainstorming is 24/7.

European (German, etc)
Any food in general I love except: offal, blood sausage, headcheese. (I am trying to be open-minded as my husband grew up with it but I can't even cook it for my dog) and this is a problem when you love Europe.
