I love food. I love trying new restaurants, recipes and wines, especially with family and friends. I love cookbooks and food magazines, grocery and specialty food stores, kitchen gadgets and cooking shows. The goal of my blog is to introduce you to some of my favorites and learn about some of yours in return.
I am a proud aunt to 12-year old twins, Gabe and Lexi, who are the light of my life. They have been with Brad and me since they were 5 years old and it has been absolutely fantastic watching them grow, learn and figure out just what to feed them. Lexi is an absolute delight, especially foodwise – she loves everything! Gabe is currently on a hot sauce kick (I’m talking habenero!) but that’s cool if it makes him eat his broccoli.
Professionally, I am an editor and writer, and have published a number of articles on management, leadership and talent development topics in a variety of national trade publications. I hold a Master’s Degree in Training and Development from NCSU and have extensive experience in instructional design and organizational development.
In what seems like a long-ago, previous life, I bartended, waitressed and cooked (in addition to working in various libraries) to help put myself through grad school. So maybe I know just enough to make myself a bit dangerous when it comes to being in the kitchen and behind a bar. I’ll leave that up to those I cook and serve as well as anyone who tries my recipes.
All in all, I think writing about food just comes naturally and I hope you will enjoy my blog, comment often and share your own culinary experiences!
