To think is to create
I grew up in southeast Indiana and my parents owned and operated a bakery. My dad has been a baker for over 40 years and still has the same bakery. I worked FOH at the bakery while in high school and summers during college. I still love to help with Christmas cookies and Ginger Bread House creations! His baked goods are the best!

My husband and I were owners of a steak house in Reno from 2001 to 2003. The restaurant was awesome and my famous salad was put on the menu. I don't really cook, but I bake and love to make salads with fresh, local ingredients. I am known for my salads and my cheesecake (my grandmother's recipe).

I currently live in Santa Clara with my husband Michael and I work for a telecommunications company in the corporate finance area. I am also a licensed real estate agent in Nevada.

I am a total foodie and Michael is a fabulous cook! We love to dine out and try new restaurants. I also enjoy wine, beer and a good cocktail from time to time.

Going Green

Posted on April 22, 2009 at 2:14pm 2 Comments

I love doing my part to combat global warming! Since its Earth Day, I feel compelled to write this blog to share with the FohBoh community and to reflect on what I have done in the past and what I am doing now to do my part to be green.

I grew up in a very organic environment, where fruits and veggies were grown in the backyard garden and "put up" for the winter so we would have our own produce year round. My favorites were Silverqueen Sweet Corn (we had half an acre dedicated to… Continue

All I want is a cup of tea

Having expertise in your product is expected at a speciatly establishment. If you brag about how great your product is, then serve it with mediocre condiments, there is an immediate disconnect. Add poor customer service and you may never go back. Worse for the establishment, tell other about your experience...

Yesterday, I bypassed Starbucks in Santana Row for the tea place around the corner. A real tea house! I love tea and I was excited to finally try this place.

Well, my…


Butts in Seats

Posted on December 21, 2007 at 9:18pm 4 Comments

That's is a pretty old saying. I grew up in the bakery business and remember hearing my parents talking about "butts in seats, gotta have butts in those seats", whatever that meant. I know what it means now that I am always looking for new ways to bring in more people. Customer counts are pretty important and so is frequency.

Getting new and old customers in the door with growing competion is a challenge. Any ideas?

I found this group out of Mesa, Arizona. They are… Continue

Hi Doug. Its undecided if I am going to Chicago in May. I was going to come later in the week and we were going to go to the Indy 500. I think we have scratched those plans at this point. Michael will be there for sure. Stay tuned!

I wish I was seeing them. I am saving up for CSN later in the summer. Who knows, I might see if I can get a ticket for the Portland, OR show. That would have been insane to see Rush and Foo Fighters! Will have to check that out on Youtube.

I love Rush! I saw them perform 2112 a few years ago during a normal concert. If there is a normal concert.

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?

TED: David Sengeh: The sore problem of prosthetic limbs - David Sengeh (2014)

What drove David Sengeh to create a more comfortable prosthetic limb? He grew up in Sierra Leone, and too many of the people he loves are missing limbs after the brutal civil war there. When he noticed that people who had prosthetics weren’t actually wearing them, the TED Fellow set out to discover why — and to solve the problem with his team from the MIT Media Lab.
