Describe your cooking style in three words: Quick. Savory. Unprocessed.
What’s your signature dish? My most popular dish would have to be my Baked Sweet Potato & Carrot soup.
What do you think is the most underrated ingredient? I love smoked paprika. It adds a hint of smokiness and spiciness to any dish.
What’s the best cooking advice you’ve ever received? To substitute applesauce for butter in baked goods. It reduces the amount of fat and increases the moistness of the end product.
If you could share a meal with anyone in history who would it be? I would love to share a meal with The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond. She seems so down to earth and friendly, like she could be a close friend or family member. Plus, her recipes are to die for.
