Much of my inspiration for creative meals stems from my roots. Every side of my family, had one thing in common.... FOOD! My inspiration comes from my parents, who also enjoy cooking and being creative together, who continue to show me that food and the expression of love are corresponding. I was surrounded by a formidable - and very Irish - family, on my father's side. On Saturday night, my Grandma would be up late sorting beans to soak, with her many grandchildren, and those moments are some of my fondest memories. I've spent over a decade working in the restaurant industry, and have spent many hours consistently learning about food and drink. I enjoy cooking (obviously), gardening, spending time with my family and friends, and martial arts, to combat all the calories! I am excited to share my recipes with you!
