Owner/Operator

I have lived in East Tennessee for 24 years. I am a mother of three fantastic children - Justin, Ashlie and Lizzie, grandmother of FIVE Chesnie, Everlee and Cole, Boyd and Cyrus! With a large extended family, food has always been a big deal! I love trying new recipes and spending time with family and friends. The Flour Power Concept is simply amazing and the perfect way to do what I loves! To teach all ages to make fun, healthy meals and snacks and enjoy each others company, how much better can it get? If you don't find me in the Studio I am probably either working in my yard or out on the lake with family and friends. My favorite food - it depends on the mood but homemade pizza is always good!
