I've been cooking since 3rd grade. My family was very outdoorsie and grew up with fishing, hunting, boating, etc. I lived in Mpls. for 36 years and moved to Crystal, 20 min.outside of Mpls. I like the diversity. I enjoy gardening a lot, and did estates around the area both Seasonally and Winter Christmas containers too. I've been sober for 16 years, and lost hundreds of friends due to aids. Life is short and I want more from it.I'm neg. and plan on living a great life, too bad I'm single, lol.. I'd like to share what I know with others.I love to garden and I have a cooking show on community television here in Mpls, the NW suburbs, Burnsville MN. and 8 other stations Nation wide.
