She was the type of cook that would whip up the most incredible dishes with whatever she could find in her kitchen. I was always amazed, inspired & honored to have a place at the table watching her do her magic.

Interested in a smoker?
If you are interested in getting a Traeger I have linked the website here as well as below. I absolutely love mine and have used it for more than just smoking meats. I’d love to answer any questions or concerns you have so feel free to reach out! The smoker has become the place for me to grill, bake and just infuse the smoky flavor to any food. It is so versatile and can be used for meats, veggies, pastries, and cakes! Pretty much if you can create it, it can smoke it!
