Let's turn your home into a place where laughter echoes, stories flow, and bonds strengthen over the love of great food and delightful drinks (without breaking a sweat!)
Born, raised and currently residing in Orange County, CA I look forward to sharing my fast and easy recipes, quick beauty hacks, how to deal with aging gracefully (or not, there's no judgment here!) and tips and ideas to make your job and "mom" a little easier.
I love being a boy mom (born 4/06 and 12/08) to these kind-hearted kids and won the lottery in the husband department.
I don't have a formal food background and went about 30 years without really learning to cook. When my oldest son was diagnosed with food allergies when he was 1 year old, I had to change everything.
I taught myself how to cook everything he ate from scratch. It also taught me that I don't want to be in the kitchen any longer than I need to be. He's now 17, and I've become skilled at finding time-saving hacks and shortcuts while still creating delicious dishes.
And years ago, as a cocktail server (in my pre-marriage life) I learned about wine and drink making. I also learned that while I wanted to sip tasty drinks at home, I absolutely didn't want to have all the tools and specialty liquors in my home bar. The cocktail recipes I share on this site are a product of that idea.
I believe you can have a basic bar set up and make all kinds of cocktails from it.
