So here is how it all went down….in D.C.

We arrived in DC Friday evening, the day before the open-call. It took just a little bit of patience to find the Inn we were staying at. See, we had originally planned to make it there in the daylight, in 5 1/2 hours, but that didn’t quite happen due to two horrific accidents on the…

Happy One Year to The Onyx Plate! Masterchef…say whaaaaaaaaaat???

November 13, 2010, began my journey. A few months before that date, I had found myself needing something more, not feeling that passion I once had in life. I discovered something that I was pretty decent at over the next few months, and it lit a spark in my mind and heart. This was what…
