I love cooking and baking! New recipes, old recipes, or putting my twist on a classic, I find quality time in the kitchen to be both relaxing and invigorating. The daughter of a foodie father, I will try just about anything once. Being new to the area, I am having a blast finding new restaurants then trying to duplicate our meals at home.
When not in the kitchen, I have always loved writing. This site is my way of combining my love of food with my love of writing. Even better, it gives me a way to share some of my most-requested recipes–and an excuse to come up with more. ;-)
I married my amazing husband, Jon, 12 years ago. He is my biggest cheerleader and my willing taste tester. Over the years, the recipes I have tried have become more adventurous, but he always eats whatever I put in front of him–even on the rare occasions where it is horrible. Even better, he always finds something he likes about every dish, even if I can’t! How’s that for support! ;-)
Jon and I have an adorable little fur-baby who would be happiest if I would spend less time in the kitchen and more time cuddling her!
We are both avid sports fans, following the Durham Bulls, the Philadelphia Phillies, the Boston Red Sox, Duke and Notre Dame football and basketball, and the Buffalo Bills and Oakland Raiders. Baseball is one of our favorite sports, and we are fortunate enough to live in a town with a Triple-A team, for which we have a small season ticket plan.
We love spending time with family and friends, but we are both introverts in a world of extroverts. At the end of the day, there is nothing we love more than curling up on the sofa in front of our well-loaded DVR. We tend to be TV addicts, and record many more shows than I care to admit! ;-)
