On my birthday – August 7, 2017
My career as a writer for radio and television began in the late 50’s. Heady days with Award winning commercials and documentaries. In the 1980’s I followed my heart into the kitchen and for many years my husband and I were chef/owners of several restaurants. Our French restaurant, ROXY’S BISTRO, proudly graced the list of 100 BEST RESTAURANTS IN CANADA.
Now I live in a sprawling book filled house in the country. 250 cows are my neighbors. I look out to lush, green fields. Mountains. And ocean going ships. Eagles soar over head, and frog songs fill the quiet nights.
I’ve returned to the magic world of writing. I write about:
OSWALD GENTLEMAN RABBIT, saving the world one tree at a time while serving his guests sweet desserts from Paris.
There’s a tale of Mocha The Dog With Magic Ears and his friend Summer, the flying horse. Stories written for our very young great-grand children.
I take you into my alto ego’s kitchen. The kitchen of MRS.BUTTERFINGERS. Seventy years of cooking spill onto the pages of this food blog. Food that is cooked from the heart and nourishes the soul. MRS. BUTTERFINGERS promises to cook with you every step of way.
And I take your to my fantasy little house in Paris – une petite maison. I lovingly chop, saute and simmer cassoulet for Theadora and The Tin Man TO CELEBRATE THE LOVE OF PARIS.
There’s bits and bobs of the joyous parade that fill my days. This is the poetry of my heart. Days sometimes bitter sweet but always embraced for the simplest pleasures. Always BEL’OCCHIO – the beautiful eye.
