One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once held a thousand-year-old manuscript in my hands.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teaching, learning and sharing in the kitchen are some of my favorite things in the world.

I can teach you how to play Bananagrams - like Scrabble, but better!

I like to learn languages - German is what I'd love to learn now.

I always like to share stories.
