I am an avid foodie....Raised by a southern mother, I have a broad base of cooking knowledge. I am not afraid to tell you I do not have the answer. In the kitchen I am adventurous as well as a traditionalist.

Experience in the area

Life long, my mom taught me to cook as a very young child. I enjoy the art and it brings me peace to cook for family and friends.


Taught by three generations of amazing cooks. My dads family is Irish, my mom is from the south, I have been cooking my whole life.
