About spatulas & corkscrews

There’s a lot about me most people don’t know. I’m a freelance writer and the Baking & Desserts Feature Writer for Suite101. I live, cook, bake, photograph and write about it all on a sailboat. Yes, in the winter too!

I currently write a very lively blog called Spatulas, Corkscrews & Suitcases which shows off everything I love ~ Baking, Cooking, Wine and Travel! It’s like a giant vortex, sucking everything in its wake! Come visit and see what it’s all about!

Even though my motto is: “Life is uncertain, eat dessert first”, my other passion is wine. Wine tastings, drinking wine, learning about wine, and writing wine reviews. This obsession with “My life as a Wine-O” has earned me 2 certificates with Wine Spectator. I’m currently on the quest for the perfect Big, Red California Zinfandel. Any suggestions?

When not cooking, baking or wine tasting, my interests are sailing, traveling anywhere I haven’t been yet and anything sci-fi. I have a long list of things to do before I die and I scratch off more and more each year. What a life!
