Bio:
I am an award-winning cookbook author and have self-published 2 cookbooks. “If you can read you can cook” is what my mother taught us and I have always gone by that motto. My cookbooks are easy yet provide beautiful food with a variety of flavors, textures and colors. Eclectic Entertaining – 15 Complete Dinner Party Menus for Busy People Who Like to Cook,  won 2 awards from CIPA in 2014 and caters to the person with limited time by even providing grocery lists. Eclectic Entertaining – Small Plates & Dainty Desserts, was released in November of 2016 and is ideal for those who love variety. It is literally Cooking 101 as it contains 101 recipes and a photo for each one, making life so much simpler!
