I am an Arizona transplant who traded the rain for a life in the sun. My daughter is like having 5 kids in one so my me time is found outside running or in the kitchen cooking and creating recipes families will love. I graduated with a Degree in Biology and went on to get my post-baccalaureate degree in dental hygiene. I feel the way to make people smile and come together is through good food, so I try to create meals that will not only be easy to make but delicious to eat. My philosophy is, when all else fails, have a dream. So that is what I try to do, dream, create, and bring my recipes to life from my kitchen to yours.
