Native upstate girl with a serious passion for food. My husband, Danny, and I have opened a restaurant and had a couple kids in the past few years, so we've been a little busy. It hasn't stopped us from living a life committed to eating whole foods, mostly local, and not much processed. This equates to a lot of time in the kitchen for me, and luckily I love it. A lot of my inspiration comes from things we serve at the restaurant, and certainly my techniques come from talking with our chefs and how they do things. So you'll hear a lot about the "kids at the restaurant"!
