Throughout my career as a counselor, public speaker, writer and now an author, I always encourage a "follow your dream" philosophy.
The journey of producing this cookbook has been very growth oriented and rewarding.
It is my joy to create and share many of my favorite recipes with you.
May this simple cookbook offer you the same joy in discovering new favorites while quickening your own experimental "inner cook".

I would still plant my apple tree."
