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.
