I'm a huge believer that food is the best medicine and am always looking for natural remedies to life's problems. When I’m not writing you’ll find me exploring the mountains, usually on skis or in hiking boots. I also enjoy the challenge of perfecting the chocolate chip cookie. Life is about balance!
