By day, I'm an expert at getting the right people hired into the right jobs. With nearly 20 years experience in the staffing, consulting, recruiting, and human capital management industries, I'm an industry-leading sales professional, leader, and recruiter who has hired and placed more than 2000 job seekers at Fortune 500 and mid-market companies, not for profit institutions, and government agencies. When I'm not focused on paying my bills, I'm also a mother of two, an avid blogger and Technorati contributor, social media enthusiast, American Idol fanatic, and aspiring TV chef. In the evening and on weekends, my kitchen is my therapy room and safe place, where I'm totally passionate about using seasonal ingredients and healthy techniques to create restaurant-quality meals for my family and friends. My mission is to provide easy shortcuts, flavor combinations, and approachable recipes to help emerging cooks, dinner party hosts, and those who just want a good sit-down meal for their family. I've lost 45 pounds in the last year without depriving myself of a thing, by using fewer processed foods, healthier fats, bold flavors and ideal portion sizes. I hope you enjoy these dishes along with my family and friends.
