Where do you feel most at home?

Anyplace where I can relax and entertain for family and friends – nothing makes me happier than being able to cook and sit around outside drinking wine and sharing stories into the evening with my favorite people.

Nas or Jay-Z?

Jay-Z, hands down. The Blueprint album is pure gold.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?

Probably fire ant pupae that seriously tasted like watermelon! 

What service do you use to stream music?

Spotify has been life changing – I have about 115 playlists!

What is the first site or app you visit every morning?

Instagram – so I can live vicariously through all of the chefs, travelers, and bloggers I follow.

Where do you go for a weekend getaway? 

Exploring new towns along the Maine coast or to Cape Cod to escape the city heat

What do you do when you’re at a dinner party and the conversation gets awkward?

Graciously leave the conversation to help in the kitchen or offer to introduce them to someone else at the party who may have similar interests. 

If you were to get a new degree or certification, what would it be?

I would go to culinary school to learn the ropes of a real chef.
