Food is my passion. My best memories are always centered around a table filled with family and friends enjoying a good meal and great times. I have been a “sous” chef for my grandma, my mother, as well as my dad, and sister. I have a wonderful group of friends who are amazing cooks that inspire me to try new things and venture out of my comfort zone. I have recently started to cook for a client weekly and also for special dinner parties. Cooking healthy and new interesting dishes on a weekly basis is what brought me to the conclusion I need to keep a diary, a book… a list at least of my best successes in the kitchen. Sometimes I am using my go to cookbooks or my favorite cooking magazines. I am usually changing things up or combining a couple of recipes that seem to suit my client. Other times I am lucky to have some family recipes and friends who love to share their food ideas. My goal is to be a source of information including easy recipes, mostly healthy with the exception of some decadent desserts, and a source for new products that make cooking a meal easier and tastier. Feasts should be what we all strive for in a meal whether it is simple or more complex… every meal should be special. Flowers are just that… I am an avid container gardener and love making interesting arrangements for my home and clients. So “Feast & Flowers” it is!
