Step inside GEORGIA'S KITCHEN with Jenny Nelson
My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Be your own girl (or boy)! I'm constantly saying this to my twin six-year-old daughters, but it's something we should all try to remember.
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. My entire extended family (dogs included, of course) together on a sunny, summer day enjoying a delicious al fresco meal that we've all helped to prepare. There'd have to be a selection of amazing cheese, a bottle or two of rose, grilled fish, a bunch of salads made with veggies from the garden, and my favorite dessert: my mom's angel food cake with mocha filling, whipped cream frosting and dark chocolate shavings. Oh, and berries, too, because every dessert tastes better with berries.
Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?
A. People routinely describe me as "petite" a.k.a "short."
Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia, at sunrise.
Q. What is your greatest achievement?
A. Writing a novel and getting it published.
