I’m a freelance writer, wife, mom of two great kids and a black Labrigator (you’ve heard of Labridoodles? Ours is a Labrigator. I’ll let you figure it out.), living and playing with my food in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. I’m usually just as happy atop a spinning stool in a diner as I am watching a tuxedoed waiter sweep crumbs from a white tablecloth. Everything in moderation, so long as it tastes good.
