Kelly Tweeddale

Kelly Hargrave Tweeddale was born on April 12, 1960, exactly 100 years after the beginning of the Civil War. It is no wonder that her mother scrawled next to her name in her baby book "warrior" and she has lived up to the name by surviving many a battle and winning many a heart. She has a fascinating career that has taken her to concert halls of the world, put her at the nexus of opera and drama, and given her the reputation of relishing the "messy" stage of any transition. She has been rumored to have run a marathon, flown like Peter Pan, and communed with the technogeeks. Words are her sanctuary, her sanity, her sustenance.

It's All About the Pie

Let me be clear.  Cooking is not my passion.  Nor is it my calling.  There were times in my life when it was my nemesis.  It may have started when I attempted to bake my first cake.  I was ten.  It was a cake from a Jiffy box.  Something went terribly wrong.  It didn’t rise and resembled a very large pancake.  A few years later, my mother (a working mom) tried to find easy dinner solutions that we could get started before she got home.  This was wonderfully timed with the introduction of “Hamburger Helper.”  All you needed to do is brow...more
