My sweet tooth was insatiable growing up. Didn’t matter what it was; chocolate, candy, ice cream, cupcakes. I remember searching under couch cushions and carpets for spare change as a kid, then running to the corner store to fill up on 5-cent candies.
Childhood was always a game of how I could get my hands on something sweet. It’s lucky I was a very active kid, if you didn’t catch me with my hand in the cookie jar, you’d find me on the soccer field or running in local track competitions. I was always outside looking for new and creative ways to burn calories and feed my sweet addiction!
As I grew up, I developed a love for travel and spent many years exploring far-away lands, learning new cultures, and experiencing unique and traditional foods. Sharing the experience of food in many different ways and with many different people showed me first-hand how food can bring people together.
