About this Cook
I live in the Napa Valley & am fortunate to have access to all the best seasonal fruits & vegetables. Food & wine pairings are a favored past time in our home on Fantesca Estate. I work out daily and am an International fitness competitor - "healthy clean eating" is part of my daily lifestyle.
My favorite things to cook
Healthy, tasty, quick petite meals packed with protein. I am known in my family for making Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas cookies w/protein powder, Coq au Vin and spicy chili!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Creating Thanksgiving dinner with my family while watching the NYC Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on TV. It's still a joy to get tips from my Dad when roasting a turkey.
My cooking triumphs
Trying a new recipe & having it be an instant success that gets entered into the dinner rotation.
My cooking tragedies
Trying a new recipe that is such a flop, we have to abandon it and call for Chinese take-out.
