In 2004, I was chosen to participate in the 41st Pillsbury Bake-Off. At that contest, I won the Dinner Made Easy Category and was hooked. Since that time, I have won many prizes in some of this country's most prestigious amateur cooking contests. I have also had the pleasure of appearing in many television spots, including a segment on The Martha Stewart Show in which I prepared one of my winning recipes with her. In addition to entering cooking competitions, I have also written a recipe column named Karen's Recipe for Success for the expatriate magazine, American in Britain. I have a true love for cooking and eating and love rediscovering old favorite recipes and updating them for today's home cook. I also enjoy creating and sharing my own original recipes for my site, Savoury Table.
