Although only 32, I am a long time cook and I have been cooking with my grandmother, mother and aunt since I was very little. I come from a family of award winning home cooks and I love the company.

My passion for cooking often takes a back seat to my busy life with two little kids and a full time job. I often try to develop simple and quick recipes that are still flavorful and healthy for my family.

My Roasted Garlic Chicken Sausage Garden Pasta recipe is a favorite to all my fans and is especially desired at the many back yard barbecues we attend.
