Hi! I’m the Satisfied Cook. I am a self-taught cook, finding my way through interesting recipes and delights that pique my curiosity and satisfy my hunger for eccentricity. After all, we created a special room in our homes that is solely dedicated to the fulfillment of our stomach. The kitchen truly is the soul of the house and the focus of cultivating community.

We all want to satisfy ourselves, no only with food, but with deeper connections, the pursuit of our passions, adequacy, self-confidence, peace, inspiration, joy, laughter, harmony, happy families, etc. Please join in my kitchen as we all go after this deeper satisfaction.


I have always loved to eat. At age seven, while on a business trip for my Dad’s job, I tried escargot for the first time in Mainz, Germany. It changed me. I did not care that they were snails, they were bathed in butter, garlic, and fresh herbs on a little escargot dish. Growing up in Florida, I became a quick fan of cubanos and fried fish. Since I was a child, food has always been in the background of my mind.
