“You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces –
just good food from fresh ingredients.”

– Julia Child


I like to say that it all started with an Easy Bake Oven! At an early age, a passion for cooking and baking developed within me, and that passion has never faded. Whether cooking alongside my mother, grandmother, or aunt, or trying a recipe on my own, cooking was a creative way in which I expressed love and care for others.

Professionally, I have an MAEd in Education and am formally trained in Culinary Arts. I spent many years as a classroom teacher, corporate training leader, and in various restaurant, catering, and culinary director positions. I am a ServSafe Certified Food Manager and regularly attend culinary and health and wellness classes, workshops, and conferences. It is my goal to share my experience and expertise with home cooks and food businesses through my food writing and recipe development services.

In the ever-changing world of dietary advice, I take a general “less processed” approach to cooking. My focus is on selecting good quality ingredients – vegetables, fruit, proteins, whole grains, legumes, healthier fats, herbs, and spices – to create delicious meals and food products that make dining enjoyable.

Cooking and writing are truly a significant part of my lifestyle along with:

  • trying new restaurants
  • checking out farmers’ markets and specialty food stores
  • sharing meals with my husband, family, and friends
  • meeting new people and making connections
  • attending social and cultural events
  • gardening
  • reading
  • taking long power walks, hikes, and biking
  • refreshing my soul with time by the ocean
