I was born and raised in the Mid-West, but now a permanent resident of the beautiful state of Washington.
Being the eldest of eight children, I learned to cook early in life and fast!
I’ve always expressed love to family and friends through my cooking.
It has been and still remains my mission to continuously find ways to quickly prepare delicious meals, in half the time, without sacrificing the taste.
It is my heart’s desire to share my gained knowledge with the Universe…
So, that everyone who chooses to express their love through cooking, can do it without losing hours of time!
Please enjoy 🙂
