My Story


I didn’t grow up cooking at all! I didn’t have to because my mom, grandmother and her twin, my great-aunt were amazing cooks! I hate to admit it, but my aunt made my eighth-grade homemaking project, Strawberry Cake. I know, shame!

Ms. Penny’s Kitchen started around my junior year of college. I moved to Boston in early '91 and continued perfecting my gourmet bbq sauce and desserts. 

In 2004, I shared my sauce and baked goods with my BFF and her boys, it was a wrap! 

Creating in the kitchen is therapeutic for me. I'm pretty much all over the place with what I bake or cook. Once my "HMMN" is spoken something exciting is about to happen in the kitchen.
