Some people escape in dreams of sandy beaches and sunny skies, I escape in dreams of doughy extravaganzas, smoked chipotle peppers and lip smacking good sauces. Kitchen is my comfort zone and my creativity as an artist flourishes in the midst of sizzling pans, candy thermometers and simmering pots. I’m happiest when sharing my table with friends and family discussing our day while enjoying simple, homemade, mouth-watering dishes.
