About this Cook
I am married with an almost 15-year old daughter and 3 year old son. I am a personal Chef in Westchester County, NY.
My favorite things to cook
Love putting an elegant twist to classic favorites. Bringing 5-star meals to the family table is what I love!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to have big holiday dinners, especially Thanksgiving. I don't mind preparing the whole thing by myself, so long as I have no interruptions.
My cooking triumphs
My personal chef business...
My cooking tragedies
The first real meal I prepared for my husband when we were dating. I let the swordfish cook for an hour and it was a crumbled mess! My calamari came out like (as my husband likes to call them) fried rubber bands! Thankfully, I've mastered them now.
Recipe Reviews 1 review
Beef Stew IV
This was a phenomenal recipe! My husband loved it! It was simple to make. I added sweet potato and plantains for extra sweetening, and substituted the salt w/beef buillon. Excellent! Will definitely do it again!
