ABOUT

When Annie B. asked if I would contribute some of my own recipe ideas to the food section of her beautiful blog, My Healthy Pace  and in English, how could I resist?  

I am bilingual and fascinated by both the English and French languages. That is why, for twelve years, of our thirty living here,  I was a conversational ESL consultant for Francophones dans mon coin, Quebec’s beautiful Monteregie tucked between Mont St. Hilaire and the Richelieu River.  So if you are a French – speaker and have comments and questions about my recipes, go ahead!

Now, as a professional artist who loves a challenge to create on my own but also collaboratively with others , I knew Annie’s idea of working together on the blog was a great one! And , like her, I also live with a medical condition that requires careful planning and attention so I can keep going at My Healthy Pace.

Palette and palate are art and culinary vocabulary words I used to teach my students. They sound the same but have different meanings. Let’s try them out in context  as they state my goals for what I will contribute here:

“ I love to make and serve up a  richly, textured and colourful palette with others through  both my artwork and culinary creativity.”

“Through simple , common sense recipes and menus that will suit your palate, I want to encourage YOU to  live at YOUR healthy pace!”

Bon appétit!
