Hello! I have been cooking for my family ever since I was young! My mother and grandmother have taught me their secret recipes and how to make everything from Princess cakes to Indian food, chicken pot pies, and blackberry chocolate chip ice cream. The list is endless! I have tons of comfort in the area of cooking and baking and really take pride in making some AMAZING foods! My mother always said the way to a man's heart is through his stomach and lucky for me my man liked me long before he tasted my cooking but he definitely begs me to make food for him throughout the week. Just the other day he said, " I was coming up the stairs and could smell your food from 3 floors down and was hoping that was our apartment! I am so excited!" Even if you are young, a beginner, or trying to add more recipes to your repertoire this is where you are meant to be! I don't find cooking or baking a chore but an experience as well as a hobby! Just as Remy says in Ratatouille, "Anyone can cook!" I promise you won't be disappointed! PICTURES OF THE FOOD IN MY PHOTOS! CHECK IT OUT!

I used to eat take-out every night and generally felt overwhelmed whenever I walked into the kitchen. I never knew that cooking could be fun until I met Chef Stevie. She's highly skilled, passionate
