Welcome to my food and lifestyle blog! I'm a Wife, coffee aficionado, pet lover, collector of cookbooks, Le Creuset and people who love life. My goal is to inspire people to create elegant gatherings with confidence. And come visit me on YouTube every Thursday where we" get out out on the table" and talk recipe inspiration and home entertaining. Let's Talk!
I’ve spent a lifetime creating meaningful gatherings for my friends and family — seeking out the best ingredients, finding the most delicious pairings of recipes and wines, and discovering the best ways to create a fabulous meal in minimal time.
My passion for food started early, thanks to my grandmother Dodie. I fondly remember being perched on a stool in a way-too-big apron, watching intently as she sifted flour and carefully added ingredients without measuring a thing. These memories launched my lifelong love affair with cooking and instilled in me the importance of making sure my table stays as rich with food and love as Dodie’s was.

Seeking Partnerships With Meaning
I seek partnerships with luxury, creative and intelligent food and lifestyle brands. Home entertaining, cooking, yoga, tennis and travel are my passions. With over 13,000 Followers on Social Media, I’m positioned to authentically celebrate brands in meaningful ways; I only celebrate brands I personally have tried and believe in. My social community is excited and engaged and spans all generations (Fans: 99% Women 35-44 27%, 45-54 29%, 55-64 24%). And over the past 2 months my website traffic has tripled.

More about me
Through my food-based travels in Europe, I’ve learned the importance of savoring every bite, moment and conversation — and why it’s key to building a happier, more fulfilling life. From Montepertusto, Italy to Pas du Nord, France, I’ve collected a lifetime of inspiration that I’m now dedicated to sharing with you. Through incredible recipes and helpful tips, I can help you bring the warmth and richness of European style dining right to your own home.
As avid foodies and travelers, my husband Steve and I believe in a European approach to eating, dining and gathering. We know firsthand that cooking is about more than simply putting a meal on the table — it’s about sharing a meaningful experience with the ones you love. It’s about preparing fresh, in-season foods with the perfect blend of herbs and spices and letting shallots and garlic sizzle in a sauté pan — all while laughing and drinking a toast to the friends who share your kitchen, your meals and your life.
