My love affair with food began long ago….
It all started when I was a child who grew up in a home with the most amazing cook….my Mom, Irma, also known to her loved ones as “Irms” or “Gma”. My mom cooked every night when my brothers and I were young, and still to this day does the same. She never made a big to do about cooking, but always served the most delicious meals. Without a doubt, my incredible mom was the foundation of my love for food.
Not only do I enjoy cooking for my family, but also am thrilled to cook for our friends. I am so accustomed to having a full house that it just makes sense to share my love of the culinary world with others.
Cooking is wonderful, but don’t get me wrong, I also have a huge passion for dining out….there’s nothing like having trained chefs share their deliciousness!!
When at home, I try to keep things on the healthier side as my boys, well 3 of them, have all gained somewhat of a food obsession as well. It’s all about the food in this house! However, when dining out, I feel it’s important to treat yourself, and that I do! YOLO!!!!
I hope you enjoy my recipes and will gladly take suggestions & feedback from my readers. I truly value each and every one of you and your opinions!

I was so craving raw crunch when I was contemplating my next meal (as I often do) so that’s how this one happened! Being real lazy too, I must confess that I bought the brussels pre-shredded (huge time saver!) at our local store. It’s really best to allow the dressing to sit on the sprouts for a […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I had bought heirloom carrots and cauliflower and didn’t want the cauli to go bad so I woke up this rainy morning and decided to roast them and create a new soup recipe. I am so glad I did because it’s super yummy and now I’ll have a bunch of lunches in the freezer. I love cumin […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

I made this for the recent Jewish Holiday and think it would be equally great for Thanksgiving! It was so easy and perfect for making ahead of time! A little deviation from basic cubed butternut squash. I like my veggies savory so I kept it simple with just olive oil, s & p! If you […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

This is my Mom’s recipe and she’s been making this for as long as I can remember and it’s Aaamazing! The perfect amount of sweetness without being too sweet. No, it is not categorized as “healthy” but as the saying goes…everything in moderation. I had to share the recipe because that’s how good it is! […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
This soup is a meal, super thick and loaded with delicious veggies and lentils! I had a 2 bags each of cauliflower rice and riced broccoli and a box of mushrooms and some baby kale that I didn’t want to go to waste so I simply threw everything in a pot with some mirepoix, seasoning, […]Continue Reading...
