I probably love food more than I love people.
I’ve been cooking ever since I can remember. My mom was a wonderful cook and the best teacher I could have asked for. She put me to work as soon as I was old enough to stand next to her on my step-stool and help mix, grate, cut, whisk, temper, fold, baste, boil, dice, peel, and saute my little heart out. Makes sense…as I got older and she went back to work full time, having a kid at who could get dinner on the table when everyone else got home must have been pretty legit. As I got older I started branching out, taking inspiration from my travels, challenging myself to try new things, and commandeering the remote when Iron Chef was on.
For the most part I really do make a valiant attempt to create super-healthy meals that make my skin glow and all that, but sometimes you just need to faceplant in some cheesecake, you know? Yeahhhhh ya do.
This blog is my happy place–my creative outlet for everything food related and whatever else I feel like talking about. I’m also a shoe collector, shopaholic, and makeup hoarder. Sometimes I just like to talk about my day. Or the weather. I’m not picky.
At present, my husband is a full-time business student (at one of the best schools in the country, no big deal) and I’m a full-time housewife. I wasn’t always the stay-at-home type…I was active duty Army for almost a decade and got out a little over a year ago after my husband and I, with five deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan between us, figured we could use a little more “us” time.
Did I leave anything out? I know you’re dying to let me talk about myself. Don’t hesitate to leave a comment or email me!
