I've been cooking ever since I was a little girl. Sharing the kitchen with my parents and grandparents are some of my earliest memories. However, going to The Culinary Institute of America truly refined my knowledge of food, cooking and what it means to be a chef. That's where I learned patience, techniques and the importance of keeping a clean kitchen. This year, I'm happy to announce that I'm teaming up with my alma mater to spotlight some creative recipes by their current students.

Being a young chef in culinary school is not easy. You're trying to perfect your craft, keep up with your schoolwork and get real world experience in restaurants you admire. However, young chefs are passionate and super creative. They're putting twists on classic recipes, inventing new techniques and bringing fresh ideas to the table.
Every month, I'll be sharing a creative recipe by a current CIA student. Be sure to follow me on instagram to see the posts!
If you're going to be cooking up some tasty food, why not serve it in nice dinnerware. Presentation is a major part of the culinary experience. Eating out of bowls and plates that are aesthetically pleasing will enhance your meal. I'm going to be sharing some of my favorite places to buy dinnerware and some sets that caught my eye.
One of the reasons why I've teamed up with WW is because I love the way they promote health and wellness. Despite what you may have heard, you don't need to cut out an entire food group in your quest to eat cleaner. It's all about moderation!
2020 has arrived! This week I'm here to help you stick to your food and fitness New Year's Resolutions. Preparing meals at home is a huge part of maintaining a balanced diet. I know busy schedules and long work days can tempt you into eating out a lot. However, cooking your own food is better for your health and your wallet! I'm going to share three WW approved dishes that are perfect for mid day lunch breaks at work or school.
