Since April 2014, I have shared my life, photos and recipes on Instagram as simplybeautifuleating. I believe that a recipe isn’t a recipe until it starts with love, is completed in your kitchen, and served with love. The food and recipes I create are simple, beautiful and I love eating them. There was a symmetry with those three words that became an ideal concept for my blog. Simply Beautiful Eating™ is an extension of who I am, fun, creative and whimsical.
My true passion has always been cooking, baking and more recently, food styling and photography. I credit my cooking skills to my 94 year-old mom who has always encouraged me to watch, learn and complete the challenge of recreating her recipes. She taught me how to measure with my eyes and cook from the heart.
My 3 sons and husband are both my greatest fans and my biggest critics. Their support and encouragement throughout my journey has been unmeasurable. They have learned to “live” with my foodstyling and photography antics over the past year. I want to thank them for their patience, their love, their enthusiasm but most of all I want to commend them on their willingness to eat lukewarm meals.
With features on Food and Wine, Martha Stewart, Real Simple , NBC’s Today Food, Thrillist, Beautiful Cuisines, Huffington Post, and as an contributing editor, blogger and book reviewer for the feedfeed , Yahoo Canada and DK Publishing, it has been an overwhelming beginning to my new adventure – cooking and baking for the camera.
The best is yet to come…..please join me.

- What Camera do I use?
I use a Canon Rebel EOS T5 and a 55-72 mm lens kit
Sometimes I use a 50mm lens for close up shots
The majority of the time, I set my camera in one of two modes – P and M
I always shoot in natural daylight, which sometimes is very inconvenient, but you gotta do what you gotta do to get the perfect shot.
