I am a biology major who kills houseplants (by accident, not for fun) and a dog lover now owned by cats. I am firmly planted in the midwest, but it seems like yesterday that I traveled and lived all over the world. Many of my posts are about food for my family. I owe my love of food to my mom, a home-ec teacher and a jaw-droppingly amazing cook. I live on the edge of a major city, but I am longing to move to a smaller, sleepier town.
I started this blog in 2010 as a fun writing experiment while I searched for a new job. Little did I know that posting recipes and sharing stories about my family would lead to very fulfilling work. I explain it all here. I now work full-time out of the home as a food writer, so this blog is updated sporadically—at best. Thank you for visiting!
