About Me


I have always been a creative person and passionate about learning new trades. I went to art focused school where I studied painting, drawing, sculpting, printmaking and graphic design, and ended up as an entrepreneur in a corporate world running operations for several companies. I traveled the world for 15 years, setting up factories, developing, creating and manufacturing new products. I would oversee all parts of the company from the sales and marketing to the manufacturing and compliance. It was a fun and crazy ride… and, over time; I had also lost sight of what was most important to me… my family!

So in 2014, I left the corporate world to stay home with my family…. and cook! I didn’t always love cooking. I was a very picky eater as a child, never wanting to touch anything green! Then, in college, I became a vegetarian. Ha… the irony! Then after meeting my husband, who actually loved to cook, and spent lots of time in Italy (EATaly), I learned to expand my eating repertoire. Actually, it was when I first got pregnant, that I actually CRAVED a STEAK! I think that was the best steak I ever had, and then really never looked back.

I now look at cooking as my creative outlet, which has been something I have craved for the past 15 years. I have found true inspiration in cooking for my family, all of whom are “foodies” except for my daughter. (Who honestly, only eats a handful of foods… the trials and tribulations of being a MOM!).

I started Zelicious Recipes because I wanted to share some of my creations with friends and family who have been incredibly supportive of this new chapter in my life. I look forward to sharing my new found passion with all of you as well. Let the journey begin.

Thanks for reading!
