Welcome to the Cook It Up Kitchen, home to simple recipes with fresh ingredients and that are food allergy conscious. Each recipe expresses my love for cooking and deep fondness for gardens, produce, and the beautiful Earth around us. My goal is to share my excitement for food through recipes, life advice, and my travels. 


I was inspired to write my cookbook, Cook It Up Delicious Recipes for Healthy Cooking, because of how my childhood revolved around cooking food that was safe for my brother and I's food allergies. I always look forward to trying new foods and cooking with my family. Creating my own recipes has become an extension of my creativity and a way to connect to my love for food.  My recipes highlight beautiful produce, are simple to make, and are usually free from the top 9 food allergens (all are dairy, egg, and nut free). My recipes aren't necessarily labeled as "allergy recipes," because anyone can enjoy them! I'm excited to continue sharing my passion with the world! So, let's get cooking!



Cook It Up: Delicious Recipes for Healthy Cooking is an allergy cookbook and was published in May 2018. This cookbook contains original recipes of all varieties, including soups, salads, and desserts. All of the recipes are dairy, egg, peanut, and tree nut free, and many of them are gluten free and vegan as well. Cooking is the best form of empowerment when you have food allergies or any type of dietary restriction. Spending time in the kitchen from an early age ultimately gave me the same excitement towards food as anyone else, and showed me that food alleriges don't have to limit food creativity. My cookbook is a reflection of this early found love for cooking and my excitement to advocate for food alleriges.
