Culinary Professional, Recipe Developer and Mom. For me, food is an extension of emotion. Some reminisce about life events by what song was playing. I remember what I ate. I've been a contributing writer, recipe developer, and assistant editor for various food-focused publications, and have amassed significant allergy-free expertise. I recently returned to the US after having the amazing opportunity to live in Italy for 3 years and learn from Italian chefs and explore Europe. I enjoy farm-to-table cooking and restaurants and making healthy but delicious dishes for my family – including my 9 month old. Nothing makes me happier than feeding family and friends and seeing my daughter try new foods and love it.
When I had my daughter I decided I would be making her food – but at the same time I didn’t want to make 2 different meals each night. I try to make meals that everyone can eat and are baby friendly. It saves time and she wants to eat what we are having anyway.
