As the oldest of 5 kids growing up, I started cooking & baking when I was quite young. I have over 25 years of practice & I love sharing my creations with the people I love. No one goes hungry in my presence, so I spend a lot of time in the kitchen!
My favorite things to cook
I prefer to use fresh ingredients & limit processed foods as much as possible. I cook 5 nights a week (leftovers for the other 2), so we rarely eat out because I prefer my own cooking. I make a wonderful, from scratch, tomato sauce for pasta, using tomatoes and basil from my garden. Chicken Marsala, homemade pizza, and homemade mac&cheese are my signature dishes. I especially love to bake! Cookies, brownies, cheesecake...I love to try new recipes. I'm "at home" when I'm in my kitchen.
