A 40-something living in New Orleans with my boyfriend and our three cats. I work a nine-to-five but would give anything if someone would just pay me to do what I love — write, eat and travel. I missed my calling to be a travel food writer. My guidance counselor in high school didn’t discuss this option with me. In very rural south Louisiana back in the early ’80s, “wife/mother” was the top option (one of which I have been and hope to be again and the other, I’m putting my faith in chemicals and my diligence in remembering to take that pill everyday). I absolutely love food, and living in New Orleans is like being the proverbial fox in the hen house!
