Thank you for visiting. If you were here in person I’d offer you a cupcake or cook you a meal. Adventures In The Kitchen cooking school started as a blog in 2005. I had returned to a non-profit career after working as a personal chef and cooking instructor. A desire to feed my creative soul led me to create this space. It was a place to share the recipes I created in my kitchen. I believe much of life takes place around the table. It is not just about food, it is a place we share our dreams, our days, our disappointments. Relationships are strengthened, trust is built in that time we share both in the kitchen and around the table.
As a freelance food and entertaining writer, recipe developer and party stylist I believe something magical happens when you gather around the table with those you love.
I share recipes and write on family meals, entertaining and giving back to the community. You will find recipes on baking, everyday meals and special occasions. I share ideas for kids parties and home entertaining. You will even find a few freebies. I focus on healthy eating and counting Weight Watcher points over at Skinny Chick Recipes. Too much recipe testing led me to that one!
It is a dream come true to open this intimate cooking school located in Le Gourmet Kitchen, located in downtown historical Orange. It is also the city I have lived in for many years. My passion is to encourage people to get in the kitchen to cook.
My goal is to create mouth watering recipes that will inspire you to cook.
There is nothing more fun than inspiring little chefs. My niece and I spend lots of time in the kitchen cooking up meals and treats. We will be offering Mom and Me cooking classes, in addition to kids camps.
