Interesting fact about me
I LOVE to cook... and I love to share it with people (maybe not so unique but that is me)
About Me
I am a writer, artist, actor, and educator. I run a communication firm writing for clients, taking photographs, and coaching clients. I also teach Sociology at a local community college. I spent 3 years losing 150 pounds and did it by making amazing food (due to a health issue I put some back on, but am relosing it). I was a pecto-lacto-ovo vegetarian for 15 years, but just returned to eating poultry and have shifted to a gluten-free diet due to a medical diagnosis. I am having fun experimenting with new recipes. I believe in honoring people's dietary issues. And I'm excited to be learning Arabic. :-)
Why I Share Meals
I like to meet people. As a Sociologist, I am all about meeting people.... what an amazing thing you have created.
Places I’ve Traveled
I have been to Thailand, Burma, the airport in Japan, England, France, Canada, and Mexico. I have been to over 30 US states.
What I Read, Watch, and Listen To
Oh my, that could take a while... favorite band of all time Richard Marx, but love music - LOTS of Music... mostly rock and roll and country... Fav movie of all time is "Gone with the Wind" but again I love movies and have seen many I love. Especially disaster and horror films. Books, too many to name... my favorites are my future best sellers... And Dean Koontz books, of course :) I like too much TV... but "Walking Dead" is the one I can never miss
A Memory of a Home-Cooked Meal
Learning how to make my family recipes.
Who I’d Like to Have a Meal With
I have a few of these... Richard Marx - as a song writer and musician he has inspired me and gotten me through rough times in life Princess Diana - who likely is a distant cousin, but also the best expression of beauty inside and out I know of... Mother Teresa - a woman who saw people as people and never judged, but gave her whole self to them. I want to always be like that. all my friends, new and old... never enough time.

Bonniejean is a delight to share a meal and conversation with. Bill is, too! Both jumped in feet first to our family traditions (even being the first to find a hidden ornament in the tree), shared favorite holiday memories, and tasted new foods at our table. A lovely evening where strangers became friends.

Bonniejean is such an amazing host. She welcomed my fiancé and I into her home so we could experience our first Thanksgiving ever! Lucky for us she is master cook and whipped up a super tasty turkey! Definitely mealshare with her if you get the chance. She is welcome at my home anytime!

My first American thanksgiving and I couldn't have been luckier. Bonniejean was so sweet and welcoming and such a great cook. I even walked away with an awesome casserole recipe. Her family is great and I loved the part of saying what each of us was grateful for.

Bonniejean is such a great host! It was my first American Thanksgiving and she truly made it special. Her food was absolutely delicious! She made turkey, cake, pies, casseroles, and mashed potatoes. It was quite the spread. She is a such talented cook! Also, her husband Bill and her aunt were truly kind people that made us feel extra comfortable. Bonniejean is truly a great addition to the Meal Sharing community and she is most welcome at my table anytime. Definitely mealshare her if you get the chance!
