“I’m a Competitive Home Cook. I started my competitive cooking hobby when my first son was just a few months old. I have always loved cooking for myself and others, and as a new stay-at-home mom, I found myself totally wrapped up in baby world. I discovered online recipe contests one day, and it became a fun creative outlet, plus a great way to challenge myself. It’s been an amazing culinary ride since!
Over the past few years, I have won or placed in over 40 recipe contests and live cooking competitions. I have been blessed with incredible prizes – cash, trips, food products, kitchen appliances and more. I enjoy making simple recipes with fresh, colorful ingredients, especially with flavors from the Caribbean.”
