o.k I am always up of a new challenge. I would not consider myself to be a superstitious person, but when you are asked to cater for the most important game of the year, our high school homecoming game, I find myself throwing salt over my shoulders for good luck......a few weeks ago the… MORE

I needed to make dinner quick and I know for some this might mean frozen pizza, mac and cheese, a sandwich or even a bowl of cereal, but for me it's pasta. I found these frozen pasta sheets that you can purchase from Gordon Foods restaurant supply food store.....not sure where you might… MORE

The coffee house was jumping with the usual craziness: lattes, mochaccinos,cappuccinos, black coffees, bagels, and scones flying out the door. The "to go" crowd are always in a hurry, then come the "for here" crowd who can never make up their minds on what to order. They alway ask your… MORE

About Me
I am a mother of 2 happy,lovely girls,3 if you include our loving, cute papillon-maltese puppy. My time is shared with multi-tasking everyday. I run a household and am a chef at our local coffee house in town. I also cater and perform live cooking demos. I also enjoy entertaining at home for our friends. We always seem to have a great turn out for our parties. My husband says that it's because of my unique menu items, how many people get to eat linguini with clam sauce,bruschetta anipasto salad, manicotti stuffed with ricotta and goat chesse, and lavender cookies or olive oil cake?
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving, making homemade bagels for our dog, Stella, and my family helping me with my cooking demos (including my mother).
My cooking triumphs
My first catering job (which included a wedding cake)
My cooking tragedies
When I made a banana omelet for my brother at age 10 (who knew bananas and eggs didn't go well together in an omelet?). When, at age twelve, I made spaghetti for my family and kept it warm in the oven in a plastic bowl (it wasn't edible but it was a nice piece of art!).
