I am married to my best friend and love of my life, Paul. He is my designated food taster and the most flattering critic a gal can ask for. We have been married since November 8, 2008. We have one beautiful son, Ethan, who was born on November 19, 2010.
I had no desire to cook in years past, hated the Food Network and cookbooks weren't anything I would have asked for in a million years... One day about 6 years ago, something clicked and I found myself actually enjoying trying new recipes and learning how to cook...very slowly that evolved into a passion and my wonderful hobby that you see here!!
I am a Peripartum Cardiomyopathy survivor - that is pregnancy-induced heart failure. I had no symptoms and was perfectly healthy prior to pregnancy. I went into cardiopulmonary arrest during the birth of my son and was in a coma for over a week after his birth. My heart function was at 11% and currently is at 53% after months of rest, low-sodium diet and medication. If you'd like more information on my story or on PPCM, please feel free to get in touch with me!
