Where does all this award winning savvy business woman’s inspiration genius come from? After all, anyone who has ever done anything in the kitchen knows preparation for an evening of any magnitude involves days, nights, weekends, little time off and a lot of time coaxing one’s imagination to come up with bigger, better and more creative solutions. Each and every day is different and challenging; it’s simply an exciting way to live. My life is a party.
