                                  About: I was born in Alabama and raised in Tennessee. I am a christian and I love to travel and I have enjoyed vacationing all over the United States and Europe with my wonderful husband, however, I have always considered the Smokey Mountains in East Tennessee not only my favorite place, it is what I call my home. I am a nurse by trade and with a final leap of faith, a cookbook author. TLC is my place for inspiration and where I give birth to edible concoctions. “Cooking At Top of The World” [THE SERIES] is scheduled to be published Spring of 2014. It is a compliment of three cookbooks. The Lazy Cricket’s walls hold many special memories for me. The laughter of family and friends, and hundreds of wonderful cooking ideas as well as aromas like baked bread or roasting turkeys during the holidays, these are the things I know you are looking forward to making your memories with. These walls are also what inspired Herkimer J. Snerd III, TLC's mascot - after all it does stand for 'Tender Loving Care'. I hope you enjoy your stay at my personal home and take away many wonderful memories. Can't get into TLC?

                                  Why Other Gatlinburg Properties:
                                  As you drive up the drive you will notice the rows of Rhododendrons and Dogwoods. You might even catch a glimpse of an old stump that is entwined with blackberry vines, how beautiful every square foot of this place is no matter what time of the calendar year you have chosen to visit. The driveway will bring you closer to a pastoral paradise that will open to a view that astounds your very soul. You will enjoy viewing English Mountain, Mount Le Conte and the Great Smoky Mountains. Your excitement will mound as the key slides into the lock and you push open the door to witness the architecture, character, and charm of my home, the perfect symmetry. My first gaze was the moment that I fell in love with this place and I could see the evolution of “The Lazy Cricket.” You have chosen to vacation at one of America’s most-visited National Parks. The Great Smokey Mountains is within a 10-hour drive for nearly one-third of the country.
