I have been extremely blessed to experience living overseas for 5 years. Before moving to our first assignment in Brussels, my cooking abilities were not good. Out of nececssity I learned to cook from scratch and from many incredible ladies who were willing to teach not only how to cook, but the pleasures of eating and dining in a different culture. I feel that they have made me what I am today. I love to watch people enjoy and experience a great party and maybe try something completely out of their comfort zone. I have had wonderful meats and cheeses during an open "caveau" (this is when they bring out the new wines for the year) while sitting in the middle of a vineyard to having a true Italian sit down dinner where you don't leave your seat for hours. These are all experiences I like to bring to my friends and clients, a little piece of me! I am lucky to have two wonderful children a boy and a girl, who are now not chlldren anymore but remember their life in Brussels and Geneva with great pleasure. My husband made the ability for us to live in Europe and I am very grateful for the experience.


We offer many Themed dinner parties for large or small crowds, Corporate Dinner Parties, and since MTV came along with my Super Sweet 16, those have become big. We also offer menu planning and wine pairing. Easter Seals is also a big part of my services too, we help and plan as much as we can for them.
