“I was born to bake. I am a passionate lover of decadent treats + the healthy good stuff. I love to help others be successful in the kitchen and can’t wait to share my tried and true recipes with you!”


After spending five years competing in cooking contests across the nation, I started Modern Honey in December 2015 as an outlet for my creativity in the kitchen.  I love sharing tried and true recipes from decadent desserts, quick and easy dinners, and healthy recipes.


As the only girl in a household with five brothers, I had to find my niche.  At an early age, I learned that spending time in the kitchen helped me survive growing up with so many boys. I spent my teenage years studying cookbooks and tweaking recipes in my Mom’s kitchen. After I got married, I spent my days creating new and innovative recipes for my friends and family and discovered how much I loved it.

In 2010, I started competing in and winning recipe contests. I spent the next five years traveling the country competing in some of the most prestigious cooking and baking contests.
