I married a southern boy from Georgia and am a mom of two little girls and one little peekaboo dog. We live in the Chicago burbs. We love our family and friends in Chicago, but would love to live somewhere warm! Cooking in my kitchen is my place of relaxation and joy and where I feel most inspired. I’m a college grad, ex soccer player, and culinary school drop out. I live one mile from my sister and one mile from my parents. My favorite time in my kitchen is cooking dinner with my 6 month old in my baby bjorn while watching my husband play with my daughter outside. Among diapers, Curious George, and screaming, it is my few minutes of calm!
