Is there a favorite dish you make that people rave over?
I love cooking and watching the Food Network. I enjoy trying all kinds of new dishes, but when in doubt, my guacamole is usually a crowd-pleaser.
Where is an interesting place you have visited?
Several years ago, I was able to attend Wimbledon in London. We camped overnight in the tournament’s “Queue” to get tickets for the next day. I am a big tennis fan, and this was the first of what I hope is a chance to eventually attend all four pro-tennis Grand Slam tournaments.
Do you have any favorite sports teams?
My husband and I are huge fans of the Columbus Crew, and you can find us at nearly every home game. We are so happy that the Crew is in Columbus and love taking in the action at the new stadium.
