I have a passion for creating and sharing delicious meals with a healthy twist that bring people together. Whether you’re cooking for one, for a family, or for a group of family and friends you’ll find recipes and tips that will inspire you and help make cooking more enjoyable.



I am a full-time Mom of 3 little ones so making easy meals that can be prepared ahead of time (e.g. while the kids are napping) is the name of my game.  I love to get them in the kitchen with me so I create a lot of kid friendly recipes.  I believe cooking with your kids is a great way for them to learn where their food comes from and get them excited about healthy eating.  It can get messy but that is sometimes half the fun.

I really enjoyed the TV segments on Fox Q13 Morning News and being a winner on the Food Network’s Guy’s Grocery Games. These days reaching those in my community and taking care of my growing family takes most of my time. But I believe life has seasons and when this season is over I hope to be back on camera sharing my love of food.

I feel very blessed to be able to do what I love for who I love and live by the below Bible verse.
“if you have two coats, give one to the poor. If you have food, share it with those who are hungry.”-Luke 3:11
