Hi! I am a working wife and momma of two young kids at home. The kitchen is my happy place! I enjoy making good food for my friends and family to enjoy. 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.
