I have had the pleasure of working with many outstanding companies and publications over the years... here are some of them! In addition to creating the recipes below, I propped and styled them too!

For 5 years, I was the Recipe Developer, Tester as well as Food & Prop Stylist

​for Our State Magazine.
Some of my creations are here!

hoop cheese biscuits

In addition to my work at Our State, I have created and/or tested recipes for these companies also...

squash blossom pizza
watermelon arnold palmer
all sorts of deviled eggs
dilly swiss tomato pie covers!   most images click to recipe

…from ideation and creation from scratch, to testing and tweaking, I love working with clients on all parts of recipe development and testing!
My favorite thing is heading into one of my kitchens, (especially my rustic and vintage outdoor cookhouse with my grandma’s double oven stove), where I do my happy dance while playing with food. That is what most makes my heart happy. Whether your needs are for the consumer audience or as a wholesaler marketing
to restaurants, caterers, grocers and others, my experiences cover them all, and it would be my pleasure to get into my kitchen and
​happy dance my skills for you and your products!

These are just a few of the many recipes I have had fun creating! As you can see, I can create across the board...
