About

 

After 26 hectic and fulfilling years as a fundraiser for a global non-profit, I’m enjoying life in the slower lane in the mountains of my home state, North Carolina. Twenty minutes north of Asheville, I live with my husband Paul, Ceci the cat and a flock of happy, spoiled chickens. The great local food, beer, art and music communities here make this a great place to live.

I spend my time with family and friends cooking and sharing food, reading, writing, making music, gardening, raising chickens for eggs and appreciating life.

Thanks for joining me at Dana’s Plate!
