Poetry from the wheat field, dance floor and heart
"I like to think I'm wearing my heart on my sleeve in service to the common good. My recipes are to feed the body but my poems are to nourish the soul".
What sort of poetry comes from being a master baker, mother of sons, wheat's handmaiden, tango dancer, mistress of scents and a woman with a Jane Austen romantic bent? Personal, riveting, evocative, sensual poems that tell a tale from kitchen to fields of grain to the baseball diamond, to dance floors with worn patinas of unending tangos danced till midnight and a heart that takes no prisoners. This is a special and highly personal collection of poetry of the baker & cookbook author who danced tango in cowboy boots and baked bread in a frilly apron and raised three boys into men along the way. It includes poems of all seasons and reasons, light on tears but rife with heart and spirit. It is one person's unique recipe for life and love in poems.
