All About Me

A thirty year old housewife,  a lover of fine food and a cook at heart.  I am not traditionally trained in the culinary arts and I am obviously not a celebrity chef.  I am, however, a proud resident of Chicago, a mother to the most adorable baby girl,  a doting owner of a golden retriever and a chocolate lab, a graduate of Dartmouth College, a Bikram yoga enthusiast, and in my personal opinion a very good cook.

My food is simple and elegant and the majority of my recipes are the result of constant experiments in my kitchen.  I will share with you my favorite recipes, time savings techniques and the lessons I have learned the hard way-who can forget fire scorched walls and singed eyebrows.   So enjoy and welcome to my cooking blog!
