I’m the chef and momma behind More Momma.
I grew up in Southern California and attended culinary school in Florence, Italy. I have an amazing husband and three kiddos.
I’m most passionate about my family, cooking and faith. My children make my life fun and exciting and cooking allows me to get creative. It’s no wonder that I use More Momma to encourage my fellow mothers to cook with their kids. Mixing and cooking up recipes with my kids has made my life happier, and it thrills me to teach my kids the importance of cooking.
It’s probably a good thing, but I relish in recipe testing and creation. I love creating new recipes or solving people’s dietary needs. I also adore teaching you how to be a better home cook, making meal time less stressful.
How More Momma Began
From the beginning, cooking and running a business were ingrained in my story. Working as a personal chef and caterer got me through college. I went on to teach culinary classes, work with a world-renowned restaurant consulting company and created an educational gaming app for children with food allergies.
I started sharing recipes when my first born had a milk allergy that he later grew out of.
Passionate about good food, and needing a creative outlet, I created an Instagram account called, you guessed it, More Momma.
My goal was to share simple recipes and talk about what was on my mind — motherhood, faith, family and products that made a difference in my life. I focused on easy recipes, tips on how to get cooking with your kids, and culinary techniques and tips to help the average home cook cook more efficiently.
More of the Momma You Want to Be
I found that I wasn’t the only momma who needed this resource and have been increasingly overwhelmed by the positive response and gratitude from other mommas out there.
We’re dealing with the struggles of balancing work, family, faith and home. Sprinkle (or toss) in feelings of loneliness and isolation — or thinking that you’re not doing enough for your family, and you’ve got a recipe for frustration. I have been there my friend!
Simply having the resources necessary to put a meal on the table makes a big difference and allows you to be more of the momma you want to be.
That is what More Momma is all about, and I’m so glad you’re a part of it. Cooking has made me feel more sufficient as a mom, wife and person.
I hope it can do the same for you.
