I am a sixty-something retired nurse-midwife who loves to cook and garden. Flowers, veg, herbs, etc. I have two grown daughters and four grandsons. I have lived all over the eastern part of the US (husband is an industrial engineer) and finally settled here about 9 years ago when my spouse opened his consulting firm and we could live where we like as long as it's near an airport. I really admire Jamie...we have been watching him since Naked Chef days. Love the new show and his home in the country.
