I was lucky to have chef Sarah for 2 months. I usually don't like asparagus and green beans but the way sarah cooked them made me enjoy eating them! I don't know how Sarah cooked them. They were so yummy and now I love them. Also my toddler loved her carbonara pasta. He actually sat down and fed himself saying "This is good." (My 3yr old boy always runs around while eating)
As a mom of a newborn and toddler, cooking can be tough but Chef Sarah made it possible for me to focus on the kids but still have fresh and delicious food every night.
