My name is Marie Antoinette Franklin; I go by Toni. I live in a very beautiful part of the country. My home is Mooresville, NC situated near one of the largest manmade lakes in the country known as Lake Norman only 20 miles from Charlotte. For many years I was a single mother throwing together meals on a tight budget, but somewhere along the way developed a passion for cooking.
The most enjoyment and peace for me occurs in the kitchen I simply love to cook and amuse myself by trying different ingredients and food outside of my comfort zone. I consider myself a true home chef specializing in Italian foods and wines. I also love eat and try new foods so therefore I need to keep active to stay healthy. I do so with yoga, pilates, and power walking. I thoroughly enjoy meeting new people and hosting social events in the home or in the local community. My 17 year old daughter is my rock, my toughest critic, and my biggest fan. I ama proud and loving owner of two gorgeous Maltese dogs who love to be in the kitchen with me when I'm cooking.
