I’m Amanda. I am a mom, a chef, and a two-time MasterChef competitor. I love creating beautiful and delicious meals for my family and friends. To me, there is no better way to tell someone you love them, than to create a meal for them.
On my site you will find the yummy treats, the savory bites and everything else that is created in my kitchen.
I live with my daughter in Michigan but I love travelling the world and seeing new places and experiencing new foods.
I have been cooking and baking since I was three and now get to share that love and passion with my daughter♥
At age 5, I was standing on a step stool, waiting for my mom to pass the spatula so that I could mix the banana bread batter. At the age of 12, I was watching Emeril Live instead of MTV. For my 16th birthday, I asked for something unexpected! I got the best gift ever; my very first Kitchen Aid stand mixer!
I have cooked around the world, have hosted hundreds of dinners, pop-ups and was an owner/operator of my bakery. The true magic of food is its power to connect.
As seen in:
I hope to write and publish my own cookbook to share the extra special recipes from my childhood. To me, I can only honor these recipes in a printed, hardcover, bright and beautiful book and I can’t wait for that to happen.
Please feel free to comment, make suggestions for recipes you would like to see and share my recipes with friends. If you have any questions about specific recipes, please leave a comment below that recipe and I will get back to you.
