I’m a mom to three boys that started out with picky little palates, a wife to my high school sweetie, and was a Registered Dental Hygienist before Picky Palate started. My love of cooking didn’t happen until my husband and I got our first home back in 2001, where I realized I had no idea of what to cook in my new kitchen! I made it a goal that year to learn all I could about cooking, food and recipes. I read cookbooks like they were novels and watched cooking show after cooking show on Food Network. In all of my experimenting and studying, I found my real passion which is creating and writing my own recipes.
