I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, home of the famed Primanti Bros. sandwich. In a previous life, I worked as a marketing analyst in a few different cube farms. I am entirely self-taught when it comes to the kitchen, learning as I go through cookbooks, magazines, television shows, YouTube, and a tremendous amount of trial and error. My grandma baked by feel; her hands knew when dough was ready and she never second-guessed herself. I try to channel her confidence when I’m in the kitchen, and hope to pass it along to my readers, too!
When I’m not in the kitchen covered in flour, you can usually find me watching sports, lacing up my ice hockey skates, obsessing over my fantasy football team, playing a rousing game of 500 Bid, or spending time with my husband at our home in Pittsburgh with our son, Joseph, and two Golden Retrievers, Einstein and Duke.
