Burnt Macaroni photos 1 504aHi I’m Chris! Thanks for stopping by!

I started Burnt Macaroni because I wanted to teach myself how to cook.  I truly believe if you can conquer the kitchen, you can conquer anything in life — after all “food is a language we all speak”!

Growing up an Irish girl from the Bronx, our cooking style was simple…meat and potatoes!   My Ukranian grandmother added a little spice to our life but I must say, I grew to love Irish Stew and Irish Soda Bread!  As I ventured into the world, my palette grew and my love for food and the experience of a great meal became my hobby.  I love that food is the great equalizer.  And nothing is better than good food, good conversation, and good friends!

Burnt Macaroni is my inspiration!  My mission is simple; learn to cook natural, healthy foods for my family and friends.  Oh and take the stress out of cooking!  I hope you’ll take this journey with me and maybe even learn something new.

I am also the host of Family Food Live, a Facebook Live show that features 5 recipes in 1 hour.  I can be seen live every Wednesday on the Burnt Macaroni Facebook page at 11 am CST/12 noon EST or on Fridays on the Quirky Momma Facebook page at the same time.

Here’s a video I made for you about starting my journey on Burnt Macaroni!

You can also find me on a great family website, Kids Activities Blog!  I am honored to write and create recipes for this amazing family resource.  Here are just a a few of those original recipes:

~One Pot Pizza Pasta

~Jelly Meatballs

~Ghoulash

~ Kids Apple Dump Cake

~ Homemade Pizza Balls

As a television producer, I have met some incredible chefs who inspire me.  I had the distinct honor of meeting my greatest inspiration of all, Julia Child.  What a lovely woman!  I was hoping that someday her good cooking mo-jo would rub off on me.  Fingers crossed!   I thought you might enjoy this photo!  It makes me smile whenever I see it.

My dream of writing is also starting to come true.  I was so excited to be featured on “The Huffington Post” as part of Arianna Huffington’s Thrive series.   Here’s a look at my article “I Wanted to Be Successful and Raise my Kids”.

I am also a member of the Today Show Parenting Team!  I am honored to be part of this amazing group of parents.

I also write for a website devoted to Sports Moms.  Check out my work on Sports Mom!

I hope my journey will teach you something new about cooking.  And if you have any great cooking tips or secrets that I can use, please feel free to leave me a comment below.   You can always email me at chris@burntmacaroni.com.

Bon Appetite!
