Eat 2 gather

I am a stay at home mom of four teens/tweens.  I love to cooking and feeding others.  I am very enthusiastic about getting people to get around the table with their people!  It's the driving force in my writing and I also speak publicaly on how you can find your way  back to the table.  

I am a very social person and love hosting dinner, bookclub, and any other reason I can think of to have people surrounding me in my kitchen.   Traveling, reading, and following my kids sports are my other hobbies. Although I love to cook, I never pass up the opportunity to eat out.
