I’m the recipe developer and food photographer behind So Much Food. I’m also a real estate agent, wife, dog mom, and frequenter of the best places San Antonio has to offer. Like most millennials, I’m BUSY and my recipes reflect this. So Much Food is full of exciting recipes that are approachable so you can fit So Much (GOOD!) Food into your busy schedules, too!
I’ve had a love for food my whole life. Growing up, food consisted of a mixture of comfort food thanks to my midwestern mama and traditional Spanish fare from my Hispanic papa. They cultivated such a rich love for food in me from a young age that becoming a chef was almost destiny.
Before moving to Texas (not buying cowboy boots…) with my husband and our four (not a typo…) dogs, I was a professional chef in San Diego for more than a decade. I spent ten years bringing local, seasonal food to the folks of Southern California. During this time I was published in several magazines and even competed on the popular Food Network show Cutthroat Kitchen three times.
I’ll be honest – -after 10 years of long hours, I was tired and ready to hang up my apron. But, I was determined to find a way to continue to share my passion for food with others and thus, So Much Food was born!
My recipes are constructed from my years of professional experience, packaged in a way that’s easily digestible for the home cook. I love to draw on techniques I’ve learned in professional kitchens and find ways to implement them in a way that is accessible for all. From comfort food, to healthy eats, to recipes highlighting other cultures, there’s something here for everyone.
Thanks for joining me on this journey, we are going to eat SO MUCH FOOD.
