When I think about a certain event, I usually associate it with the food I saw or ate at the time. Whether it was through travel, places I have lived, childhood memories or get-togethers with family and friends, the food played a role in defining my experience.

The kitchen is my favorite room.  It’s where I go to relax and explore and where I spend most of my time.  My food tastes are eclectic, but focus on what make me feel warm and happy. After all, isn’t that what comfort foods are all about?!  I hope my children will remember my love for food and cooking. Growing up, my mom always prepared home-cooked meals. I used to wonder why she would slave away in the kitchen when she could pop a TV dinner in the oven (which I longed for at the time), but I’m glad she didn’t.

I live in Westchester county in New York, but I grew up in northern Michigan.  I am fortunate to be a stay at home mom (11 years now) and used to work in finance as a portfolio manager at a large commercial bank in NYC.

Thank you for stopping by.  I would love to hear from you!
