I’ve spent over 20 years collecting recipes and cookbooks-old and new.
Most recipes are pretty straight-forward and success happens with patience, techniques and learning the basic components of ingredients and flavor. I am fortunate to have won several national cooking contests. This gives me the opportunity to be the first to create interesting things like Blueberry-Almond Baklava with Orange Blossom Honey Syrup.
I hope to share my love of recipes with new cooks to the kitchen, as well as experienced cooks I’ve met along the way.
I grew up in North Carolina in the suburbs of a military town where I learned the value of hard work and patience. I moved to Kansas 10 years ago, and love the sunshine, people, and sense of family that are so common here. I love riding my bike, visiting small towns, and perusing antique stores for hidden treasures.
After many years working as a stay-at-home mom, I went back to college and earned a B.A. degree in Mass Media from Washburn University. With my theatre background, a degree in Mass Media, and my love of cooking, it’s no surprise I’d marry all three into this passion called “The Vintage Cook.” (established 2007)
As an entrepreneur, I enjoy new ideas. I’m always interested in new opportunities as well as helping people succeed in the kitchen. Feel free to contact me anytime.
