I'm a long time cook/baker that makes food centric recipe videos to help the novice cook or welcome a seasoned cook that wants to focus on the food. I'm passionate about both Christmas and cooking. Once my baking gene gets activated in September, I want to bake all the things. Grab a cup of hot cocoa and come on into my kitchen!


  1. Love your video on Eggs in a Basket…I call them Italian Eggs, named for the movie, Moonstruck…the wonderful scene when the mom cooks the eggs in the Italian bread…your eggs came out so beautiful…guess I have to go a little slower…mine are usually a hot mess. Thanks. 🙂

    1. Oh my gosh, I haven’t seen that movie in forever! Thanks so much! I find as long as I let the egg set on the other side first and then am quick with my flip, they turn out pretty good! 🙂
