Previous Work:

I have developed recipes and provided copy for many companies.
I have developed dozens of recipes for General Mills. Look for my recipes on the Betty Crocker, Pillsbury,  Old El Paso, Live Better America, and Yoplait websites.

I’ve also developed recipes for Dole, the National Mango Board, OXO, the Shrimp Council, Eastern Fish Company, CajunCrawfish.com, Love Beets,  Bahlsen, Vlasic, the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, Hellman’s/Best Foods, Lipton, Lay’s, Musselman’s Apple Butter, Imperial Sugar, Divine Chocolate, La Paloma Gourmet, Hidden Valley Ranch, Food Lion Supermarkets, Thrive™ Algae Oil, Martin’s Potato Rolls, Siggi’s Yogurt, Finlandia cheese (and butter!), and McCormick spices among other national companies and brands.
I contributed many articles to Parade.com. Check my posts out here!

I had a seasonal food column in Taste of the Bay Magazine for several years.

I’ve written several cookbooks: 

My newest cookbook, Cooking with Frank’s RedHot Cayenne Pepper Sauce: Delicious Recipes That Bring the Heat is available at local book stores, on Amazon in both hardback and Kindle editions and at Barnes and Noble in both hardback and NOOK editions.
My first cookbook,  Everything Healthy Slow Cooker Cookbook features 300  new recipes from a wide range of cuisines and absolutely no canned soup. It is available on Amazon.com and  in bookstores worldwide.
My second cookbook, Everything Whole Foods Cookbook, featuring 300 new recipes using whole ingredients,  is available in stores and online now.
I contributed recipes and wrote the opening chapters to The Big Book of Slow Cooker Recipes and The Big Book of Vegetarian Recipes
