I'm the mom of two little boys. Wife. Baker. Lover of chocolate and cream cheese. A self-proclaimed nerd who loves everything from The Office to Star Wars. And a full-time writer who survives on a lot of coffee and a little sleep.
Growing up on a dairy farm, I started baking when I was six years old, so food has always been a passion for me. The best part? I love that it brings people together ... whether you're on a rare date with your sweetheart, laughing with girlfriends over a pizza or gathering around the kitchen during the holidays. The best food has a way of making you feel at home.
- The food I make is ... comfort food with a cool twist.
- My favorite tool to use in the kitchen is ... my grill pan
- My favorite Tastefully Simple product is ... a tie between Absolutely Almond Pound Cake Mix™ and Garlic Pepper Seasoning.
- In my kitchen, you will always find ... kosher salt, olive oil and crayon masterpieces.
