Get tested & perfected recipes every week + a free eCookbook!
Once upon a time, I was a chef – tall hat, white coat, checked pants, the works! I left the restaurant business in 2003 when my son was born. Now, I’m cooking for my family and sharing all my tested and perfected recipes with you here. The recipes on this site reflect my life: as a mom, I need easy meals the whole family will enjoy but the chef in me needs to eat too!
Yes, I’m a graduate of L’Academie de Cuisine. I also worked in the restaurant business for many years before starting a family.
Yes, my first cookbook was published by Chronicle Books in April 2018. Read more about it here.

I develop most of my own recipes. On occasion, I’ll adapt a recipe from another source or share favorites from my cookbook collection (sources are always cited within the recipe post and on the printed recipe). Every recipe on this site has been tested multiple times and perfected by me in my home kitchen.
