I love to cook comfort foods... mac and cheese, lasagna, meatloaf, pot pies... but, I'm experimenting all of the time with lightening them up a bit so that I don't give my diners a heart attack. I love it! :) It is fun to challenge myself.

My specialty seems to be "leftover/pantry" cooking. As my kids say, my best meals are when I clean out the fridge or try to use the remaining pantry contents.

Thank you for the chance and great work.

I want to wear this apron just because! Do I have to be in the kitchen? My true love is baking, but I have to not bake unless it's for something specific, or I will eat it all. Everyday cooking sometimes gets in the way too.
