I am a wife and mother of two girls living in a small town in Northern New Jersey along with my most recent title as Author to my first cookbook Carrie's Experimental Kitchen: A Collection of Mediterranean Inspired Family Meals available at many online retailers including Amazon.com, BN.com and Indie Bound. I'm also proud to be a recipe contributor for Kitchen Daily, a food sharing website owned by AOL. For more information, visit the Cookbook News Tab on the main page.
My love for cooking started when I was eight years old, and I cherish the moments spent in the kitchen with all of my maternal mentors, including my mother, stepmother, grandmothers, and aunts who taught me all of the important basics while being extremely patient yet never once asked me to leave the kitchen. I got the knack of cooking at a fairly young age, but didn’t necessarily want to become a chef, so I decided to head to Providence, Rhode Island, where I graduated from Johnson and Wales University with a B.S. in hotel/restaurant management. After graduation, I went to work for seven years in Corporate Food Services as an assistant food service director in facilities that fed over two thousand people a day. After the birth of my first daughter, I left the food business looking for something with more flexible hours, and for the next thirteen years, I worked for a local custom closets franchise as their marketing manager.
Here are some of the people I talk about on the blog:

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to read my blog. I hope you enjoy experimenting with my recipes as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them!
