About me

Location United States
Introduction A member of the sandwich generation, I still call my own mother for the deli health salad recipe she has given me at least ten times, but I can never find in the chaos of my recipe folders. I also get calls, texts, and emails from my twenty-something kids, asking for a recipe or wondering what type of chopped meat to buy for hamburger. The good news is that I am not your mother, so contact me anytime without fear that I’ll ask you about your love life, your job (or lack thereof) or anything else you would prefer not to discuss – especially with your mother. I have no formal cooking diplomas, certifications or degrees. I’ve never even worked in a restaurant. I began cooking in college and haven’t stopped. Appetizers to dessert and solo meals to huge dinner parties – I love it all. My cookbooks are well worn, but I also like to invent new recipes. My kitchen gets a workout almost every day and my utensils have knicks and scratches galore.
