Johanna M. Cook is a mother of three, living in Aurora, Illinois
and founder of Momma Cuisine. As Momma Cuisine, her mission is to
show busy moms that "Great Everyday Meals" can be done with simple
ingredients and basic cooking techniques.
As a college student, Johanna dreamt about becoming a
professional food writer and began to study Magazine Journalism at
Columbia College Chicago. However, what was supposed to be a simple
hostess job while going to school made her crave to learn more
about the restaurant industry, leading to a 10 year career as a
"front of the house" manager. This gave her an insider look into
how chefs prepare meals, as well techniques that may have only been
taught in culinary schools. Her career has also exposed her to how
to create an event for guests in her home.
After getting pregnant with her third child, Johanna decided it
was time to focus on her growing family and leave the upscale
dining scene. Then, while on maternity leave, she began to dabble
in the world of blogging, simply using it as aself expression tool
and a way to exercise her long lost love of food writing. The
personal blog began to grow and grow into what is now MommaCuisine.com, which focuses on sharing
recipes that can be simply made during a busy week while juggling
kids, chores, work, etc. It also includes lifestyle articles like
travel, fashion, and home and garden. Readers can also easily log
on to the Momma Cuisine Community and join groups like Gluten-Free
Mommas, Vegetarian Mommas, Baking Mommas and more, to connect with
like-minded moms and share recipes and cooking tips. In addition,
you can watch Johanna's recipes come to life on her Momma Cuisine
Show, You Tube channel, www.youtube.com/mommacuisineshow.
