Some of you might know me from my food and wine lifestyle site, insolence & wine, while other’s are meeting me for the first time.

I’m a California native who cannot imagine living more than an hour away from the coast even though I have a mild fear of fish. Seriously. I was once attacked by a school of yellow tang’s while on vacation in Hawaii.

In my spare time, I enjoy wine tasting (obviously), experimenting in the kitchen, spur of the moment road trips with my husband, getting lost in books and spending time with my family.
