|Oh the kitchen makes me so happy! |
That's me front row all the way on the left!
|I lived in the fast pace, heart palpitating, move or you will get burnt restaurant kitchen. I love the adrenaline rush of moving so fast for hours and then stopping at the end of the night feeling satisfied and fulfilled. Lived you say? Yes lived, no, I didn't die (this is not a ghost writer), and I did not move, get fired, start a family or just change my mind about my passion in life either. You see, just as I was able to begin really living in my dream world and making my life and my sons just that much better, it was stripped from my fingers. The day I finished culinary school, I was in a car accident and lost the use of my lower body. I now live my life in a wheelchair. You might think this could be the most horrific and devastating thing, but just think, at least I was still left with the parts that really matter most to me. I lost the use of my legs, but was left my arms, hands, eyes, brain and nose...all of which I need to continue doing what I LOVE! So instead of being able to cook in a commercial kitchen or a restaurant of my own, I will be rolling around the kitchen of my own home! The only thing you won't get to do is taste my craft. Unless however, you choose to use the tools I will provide to recreate it from the recipes I post! If you don't cook, you can feast your eyes on the pictures I will post and then get someone else to recreate the meal for you!! I hope you all enjoy this journey as much as I am going to. The more questions you ask, the more knowledge you will gain and me as well! One thing that has been engrained in my head even more now than ever is LIVE WITH PASSION!|
|Days before my accident, I was on top of the world!|
My cars seem to emulate my personality, well until now. These days I drive a silver mini van. Which I am not, nor will I ever be thrilled about! To me, it seems the dullest of the dull. Sorry all you mini van lovers out there! However, I cannot really complain though, since this beautiful car above was totaled in the wreck, my wonderful brother gave me his old mini van(which I will also add, he loves mini vans...hmmmmm.) So before this fabulous bright yellow car, my first car was GREEN! The perfect color of green, 5 speed and it was the LOVE of my life at the time. I felt like a racecar driver and got the tickets to prove it!
|This is how I roll...|
Life is different now and lots of changes have to be made daily. I learn new things about myself, way more than I did before. It's time to cook again, with passion and quickness like I once did! I am ready, are you?

Food is fabulous and so is the company that goes along with it!
