Welcome! Thanks for visiting Your Next Great Dish!

I am a Food Writer, Recipe Developer, Blogger and Cookbook Author. More importantly, I love all things food!

In 2006, I dedicated a year to cooking and found my true passion. Since then my food styles have changed. They’ve ranged from the basics, to some intermediate and now some that are quite elevated.

Through cooking, I found that I could make a passion I have had since I was in the fourth grade Journalism and my newfound passion (Food) work together cohesively. I had always been a Writer but it wasn’t until a few years ago that the two paths collided. When they did, I became an accidental Food Writer.

My food reviews appear in this Food Blog, also on my Facebook Page (Your Next Great Dish) and Trip Advisor where I have received a Senior Contributor badge.

In my food reviews, I review not only the food, but also the establishment itself. Whether it is a food truck, a fast food restaurant chain, a minimally priced, or 5-star restaurant or somewhere in between) they all receive the same in-depth “examination.”

In my reviews you will find everything from the cleanliness of the restaurant, behaviors, attitudes and cleanliness of the staff to the level of customer service, plating of their meals and, most of all, the flavors and temperatures of the food!

In my Food Blog, you will also find original recipes for the beginner, someone with a little experience or those who know their way around the kitchen.  You will also find tips & techniques for cooking and baking, and much more.

Is there a restaurant, or food truck that you would like me to review? Connect with me by sending me an e-mail with the details. Send me an e-mail at
