I am a food lover who grew up on TV dinners and eating out at restaurants. I always liked gathering in the kitchen, while others were cooking. I am married to a wonderful man who is ironically a formerly trained chef. We have two loving, wonderful, imaginative, high spirited girls who also love to eat and enjoy tasty food.
About four years ago, I started cooking food that was either inedible or barely edible. I was extremely frustrated and just kept practicing. Just in the last couple years, I have thoroughly enjoyed being in the kitchen, as the cook. I love creating daily beautiful, healthy, flavorful meals for my family and friends. I am blessed to live in Oregon, and to have amazingly fresh, organic produce available most of the year. I still struggle at times, with barely edible creations, but I get back in the kitchen and try it again. I am now truly, thankfully living a food filled life.
