I am a passionate home cook and entertaining is one of my passions. I have been involved in culinary exploits for many years. I have been in the gourmet food business, producing and selling Peter B’s Pecan Crunch (Peter B’s is a family recipe that I produced commercially and now make seasonally for friends and family during the holidays). I was involved as the co-chairman of a very successful Junior League cookbook (What Can I Bring?, Junior League of Northern Virginia) and am currently writing my own cookbook featuring family favorite recipes. I have also traveled extensively and sampled some of the best restaurants in the United States. All of these experiences have sharpened my culinary skills and food adventures.

Anything that involves food, entertaining, and friends can only be a wonderful experience. Planning memorable experiences for family and friends are things that you will be remembered for, for years. Embrace everything that makes a memory. You will be glad you did!

    As the holiday season starts coming to a close I’m always looking for special recipes for our last big day of celebration. Your Apple Cranberry Cake looks like a perfect addition. But, before I make it I would like to check on one ingredient. The 1/2 cup of coarsely chopped cranberries, I am assuming that is fresh cranberries and not dried cranberries.
    Thank you and Happy Holidays,
