Restuaranteur by trade, chef by nature
"Making life tastier one recipe at a time"
I make my living by operating my family owned restaurant, North and South Seafood & Smokehouse in Madison, Wi, with my husband, Keith, and running our prepared foods company, North & South Specialty Foods.

I wear many hats:  Executive chef, pastry chef, service manager, graphic designer, menu developer, accountant, marketing manager, social media manager, glorified busser and hostess, mom & wife, just to name a few. My husband wears just as many hats, and sometimes we swap.

I learned the restaurant business by working my way up for over 20 years. Keith & I have developed our own recipes & knowledge that have been tested and tasted with success at our restaurant.

I hope to share with you our recipes, tips, tricks, stories & knowledge.  We make real food for real people that's real good.
