Happy – an amazing feeling that I try to achieve every day. My happiness comes from life experiences; the past, living in the present, and thinking about the future. I feel my way through life finding happiness in the simple things and experiences, trials and accomplishments.
My journey for chasing happiness started in Poland when my father, mother, two sisters and myself immigrated to America to live the American dream. As soon as they were able my parents obtained citizenship. Through struggles we faced I quickly learned to look at life with the glass half full and to choose happiness.
I started associating life experiences with food and cooking. If my mind recalls a memory, there is always a flavor or food associated with it. Food unites us all; no matter where we are from or where we are going – it truly is a universal language. Food can heal you and bring you comfort; food can be associated with happiness, love, and laughs. Cooking, tasting, sharing recipes and stories brings me happiness – I hope I can shed some happiness on others, especially in the gluten free community! I truly am “just happy to be here”, everyday, living life.
