I am a mother of three, a grandmother of two and I currently work as a Pilates and Gyrotonic instructor. I have continued to evolve as a cook and baker over my 40+ years of cooking. My current fascination is with vegetables--organic and as much as possible local. I have recently experimented with cutting down the amount of sugar used in my baking recipes and with using coconut palm sugar as a substitute for white sugar. I hope to work on a new cookbook this summer (2014)--in between clients--of course!
This picture shows me at a bar in Philadelphia called Salsa in the Square. I am there to dance Rueda, a kind of Cuban salsa dancing that is danced with a partner in a circle with other partners. There is a caller who either speaks or signs calls and then the participants do the figures. It involves lots of changing partners and is terrific fun.
My philosophy of life: savour life, have fun, keep moving and eat wholesome food!
