my favorite foods and how to make them. I feed three hungry boys and a hungry husband every day, so I try to keep things simple in the kitchen.

A friend once described my recipes as “uptown foodie meets real life,” which sums up my cooking philosophy perfectly. I rarely make anything that takes a long time or has a long list of ingredients.

Some of the recipes are original creations.  Others are my adaptations of recipes I’ve collected over the years. You’ll find recipes from friends, favorite cookbooks and food blogs, and a few special recipes that have been handed down from grandmothers and great-grandmothers.
