I love to share the things that I am passionate about, things I hope you love too. For years, I’ve been sharing some of those passions here at home with my cooking students and friends. Bluesky Kitchen gives me the opportunity to reach out to a larger audience ~ that is you.
What is Bluesky Kitchen about?
Cook. I’ve been a cooking instructor for over 12 years. My love of cooking began when I started working in the culinary program of our local Sur la Table. During my 4 years there, I worked with dozens of professional chefs, restaurant chefs, and cookbook authors. With a background and degree in education, I decided to combine my new cooking skills with my ability to teach. I launched La Cuisine Maison, an in~home cooking school. I also started teaching cooking classes at the Viking Cooking School, Williams~Sonoma and various appliance stores. As my reputation for providing first~class cooking classes grew, requests for private cooking classes for groups and organizations grew. And the more I taught, the more I loved it. Here at Bluesky Kitchen, I can share with you my knowledge and skills. Cooking to me isn’t just about recipes. It’s about giving you the tools and techniques that you need to be confident and creative in your own kitchen.
For you, I hope that Bluesky Kitchen will be a place you visit not for great recipes, but cooking tips, culinary techniques written just for home cooks, and ideas for using kitchen tools.
Create. I’ve always loved to make things. I’ve been a sewer since a teenager (Thanks, mom!) In the past several years, I’ve discovered a passion for painting vintage furniture and accessories. My favorite medium is chalk paint and I enjoy sharing that know~how and projects with you. I absolutely love taking one thing and making it better: simple DIY projects to enhance our homes, organizational projects to make our spaces more efficient, and flea market finds transformed to something pretty and practical.
Do you love ideas for transforming the old and forgotten item into the new, pretty and useful? Ideas for projects to make your home prettier, more efficient, more fun? Then Bluesky Kitchen is a place for you to drop in and Create with me.
Celebrate. I love my home and I try to celebrate it everyday by making it a warm, pretty, and inviting place for my family and friends. I love your home too. I can tour homes, spend hours (if I had them.) looking through shelter magazines and Pinterest at beautiful homes and ideas for home decor. I love to share all that with you here at Bluesky Kitchen. And parties ~ I love nothing more than planning, decorating and hosting a party. That’s here, too. And since we love to celebrate the opportunity to travel, I share our travel adventures with you.
Do you love home decor? Decorating ideas? Creating a home and garden or outdoor living space to make your life more enjoyable? Do you love to learn about decorations and party preparations? Visit Bluesky Kitchen and Celebrate with me.
I can promise you that I will give you my very best in whatever area of Cook. Create. Celebrate. I’m sharing. I want to invite you to follow Bluesky Kitchen and visit for a while. Everyone is a friend in my kitchen.
