"Eat Well. Laugh Often. Be Free, & Be You."

"I'm a classically trained chef, traveling the countryside in search of the perfect bite."

Who I Am

When someone asks, “Who are you?” what do YOU say? I’m first and foremost a small town Minnesota girl, and a classic example of the melting pot of America. I am Northern Russian Gypsy, with a mixture of German, Irish, Polish, and French Canadian thrown in. In other words, I’m a mutt.

What I Do

Fast forward 13 years from culinary school. I’m a classically trained chef with a penchant for adventure. When the economy took a turn for the worse, with the restaurant industry immediately affected, I began to think outside of the box. I never dreamed I’d wind up behind the wheel of a semi-truck, but I certainly did.
