I channel my passions for cooking and online media into two food blogs: Panini Happy, with hundreds of creative grilled sandwich recipes and helpful panini-making tips, and Cooking On the Side, featuring the recipes I find printed on food packaging. I love good food and I believe that inspiration for it can be found in unexpected places. I am a featured contributor on Food Network’s Food2 website. My work has been featured in Pillsbury Magazine, on the Saveur and TLC websites and highlighted in The Wall Street Journal. In 2010, I was listed among the Top 50 Mom Food Bloggers by Babble.com.
I entered the food world following a career in online marketing and advertising for well known consumer brands Warner Bros., Gateway and TurboTax. A Silicon Valley native and proud alumna of Stanford University, I now live in beautiful San Diego, California with my husband Mike and our “two under three”.
