Mom, Chef, Nerd. I'm a chef at a private country club in Iowa. I love my kids, my husband, good food and good bourbon.

Reuben Egg Rolls

I had something similar in a local German restaurant and told my husband "I can make these!". So this is what I came up with. It goes great with any German beer.

Engagement Lasagna

My husband proposed to me one night after making this lasagna. It's based on a recipe my mother-in-law gave me that I've tweaked over the years and have now perfected.
