If I’m not in the kitchen you can probably find me in the garden. As a grow-your-own-adventure type cook, I am always creating recipes from what I harvest. I am definitely a culinary horticulturist (a food nerd). I was educated the old-fashioned way and by that I mean my Gram taught me the basics while loading me up on good hearty recipes from her secret stash. I have been a competitor on Food Network, a regular on Portland Today with a super fun food segment and I made appearances on KGW with Cassidy Quinn serving up recipe creations. Food is my love language and the most universal in my opinion. I am always excited to meet others that feel the same.
