hi! i’m so glad you’re here!


I’ve been lucky enough to do many things in my life, but most recently I’ve worked as a professional cook and baker. With all that I’ve learned, I now spend my days developing and testing (and tasting) recipes – and sharing them with you! 

In our house, we get up with the sun and most of us don’t stop working until late in the night, so breakfast and brunch are usually the only meals that we can sit down and enjoy together. 

So join me at the counter, where I cook up delicious food for my busy family, starting first thing in the morning! We’re going to have an egg-cellent time!
