It began with her own children, who are now adults and have worked with her in her Personal Chef and Catering Business. She specializes in creating and developing recipes that require healthy substitutions for dairy, gluten, sweeteners and much more.

Working with Chef Debb is always an adventure and interesting. She believes that it is important to enjoy cooking and have fun. Being a very accomplished cook, she will share her knowledge, techniques and short cuts that will make you a confident cook in your own kitchen.


Personal Chef/ Recipe Developer

Dec 2007 - Present
Dining by Design LLC

I create menu's based on my clients preferences and dietary needs. Then I will develop or alter their favorite recipes to meet those specific needs. For example, gluten-free, sugar-free, low,no carbs, dairy free, or for some of them, just old fashioned comfort food favorites. All they have to do during the week is "heat and eat", usually in about 15 minutes. They can choose from breakfasts, lunch, snacks and dinners. Appetizers too! I have been cooking and instructing my clients for over 12 years!

General Manager

General Manager: This was a 500 seat banquet and event facility with full on and off premise catering. It was an amazing company with many different dimensions. On a Saturday, we would be feeding 500 boy scouts burgers and hot dogs and the very next day, over 200 corporate executives, prime rib and shrimp! It was a great job and I could fill a book with what I learned from this experience! I will share that with my students.
