I was taught as a youngster how important it was to consume quality food and how to decipher between a ripe tasty melon and a green not so ripe one, simply by touch and sound.

I grew up creating recipes with both of my grandmothers spending quality time together, having fun, and creating “Minorpieces” that evolved into “Masterpieces” of mine in the present day.

I created my first cookie at age of 10 and named the batch “Christine’s Cookies”. My siblings/critics  berated my first attempt at cookies which encouraged me to improve upon the recipe and I won the tough crowd over to critical acclaim.
