A "foodie" with a passion for nutrition and wellness, I was blessed with a wonderful daughter who lives with an unprecedented amount of food intolerances and allergies and an amazing son who craves strong, robust flavors since infancy--exhibited by his desperate leans from the highchair to steal raw red onions, garlicky steamed clams or gobs of pesto from the table!  The challenge of feeding my kids meals that meet my stringent nutritional standards, avoid all foods of concern for my daughter and please the palate of a voracious boy has ignited creative juices and chops in the kitchen I never knew I had.
