  • I am a web designer by day and a food enthusiast by night. I'm originally from the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area but moved to the west coast (first Oregon ans now California) three years ago. Prior to that I spent two years in France and Spain. Living in Europe not only made me a much more experimental cook, but also taught me about the importance of improvising in a recipe -- because on most days I could never find all of the ingredients I needed!

    I try to use fresh/seasonal market ingredients when available and I add hot peppers to pretty much everything (so watch out!). I hope you enjoy my recipes and feel free to share.

    Have fun browsing and even more fun cooking!
