About Me – Laura Olson

I love to eat. I love to drink. I love to have fun.

I’ve had lots of experience doing all three. As I enter my more “mature” years (let’s just say I’m on the wrong side of 50) I realize I can grow older as a serious and respectable adult AND embrace my life and the world with childlike enthusiasm and wonder. I’m currently leaning toward the second route. After over 30 years in healthcare administration, I had the amazing opportunity to “retire” and focus my energies on what really excites me. That includes following my own passions, but more importantly, helping others to achieve their goals and dreams.

I come from a long line of cooks and crafters. My parents and grandparents all have/had talents that they shared with me. I like to be creative and entrepreneurial, and I am excited to pursue both avenues.

I live in beautiful Minnesota with my awesome husband of 32 years, Phil. He is a guitar instructor and truly IS an Awesome Guitar Teacher.

I am blessed with two amazing adult children who have humored my attempts at cooking and baking, being willing guinea pigs as they grew up to try something new. My son no longer eats meat (what??!??), so that has stretched my cooking skills to include meatless recipes. My daughter is quite health conscious and I’ve learned a lot from her on substituting ingredients and eating healthy. My family is so important to me, and I am so thankful for these three incredible people in my life!

I attribute my skills, opportunities and blessings to my faith in Jesus Christ. He has paved the way and guided me through life, and is my partner in all I do. I’m thankful for the chance to share a bit of myself with you, and hope you’ll eat, drink and have fun with me along the way!
