This is Callie, my dearest friend who is always with me whenever I am in the kitchen. Her usual perch is under the kitchen table beyond the island, where she can get a good look at things but not be in the way. Her eyes will follow me for hours as I cook and clean up, and cook and clean up. She keeps me company and warms my heart as I try new ideas, revisit old recipes and listen to music. I am a dog lover… meaning my dogs are family. They fill my life with unconditional love, warmth, humor and free therapy! I wanted you to meet my kitchen girl.
