Come on in…the kitchen is always open!
I’m Laura Franco, the Krazy Kitchen Mom and I love sharing my recipes and food with everyone.
I was inspired to start this blog by my daughter back in January 2015. At that time, it was just a hobby but it has quickly become a business that is growing every day. In retrospect, this blog takes me back to not only my love of food but my love of media. I graduated many years ago with a Bachelors degree in Communication with an emphasis on radio, tv, and film. I worked in heavy industry, using my talents and degree for the first 7 years after graduating from college where I wrote directed, filmed and edited technical training program for the aerospace and environmental controls industries. Who knew that after many years, I would come full circle, using my media talents again, especially editing video?
Fast forward to now – I live in South Florida with my husband Vince. I am a healthcare professional by day and an avid blogger by night and weekend. I travel a lot for my business but on the weekends you can find me with my side-kick, Vince, in the kitchen or at some type of food-event. Speaking of my husband, Vince and I were married in 1981 after meeting in high school and attending college together. In my unbiased opinion, he is the best friend, husband, and father in the world. I might add that he’s a pretty darn good sous chef and cooking helper too!
Vince and I are fortunate to have three wonderful children (we still call them the kids although they are adults now) – our daughter Taylor and twins Steve and Greg are my biggest foodie fans and the fortunate benefactors of all those goodies. And we’ve “adopted” another “kid” in the family and that’s Greg’s fiancé Alyson. She’s part of the “foodie bunch” too. The best times we have are when we are all together; there is never a dull moment and the laughing is abundant.
Oh and then there’s our darling petite Jack Russell Terroir, 16-year old Sadie. Unfortunately our dear little Sadie pup passed away on November 14, 2016.
