About Me

Hello & Welcome!  My name is Tina.  I live with my husband, Lou, and two daughters.  I have been cooking happily since I was around 8.  I grew up in a large family and as the youngest child in the family, I spent a lot of time helping my Mom in the kitchen.  I learned all the basics from working by her side.  

I love all aspects of food: the colors, the aromas, the textures.  It is my passion!  I love trying to cook anything I haven’t attempted before.  I love experimenting with new techniques.  I try to perfect dishes I’ve prepared lots of times.  I always want to develop the best way to prepare a dish and serve it in an inviting and beautiful way.  Watching people enjoy my food makes me happy.  When I go out to eat, I always love to try something new.  I find inspiration in every menu and meal.  I hope you'll join me on this journey and hopefully I can provide a little inspiration for you!
