Born in the South, living in the West. I don’t sweat the details.
I’m just a girl who loves to cook & entertain friends. I love good food, good wine and great conversation. Although originally from Florida I have called the San Francisco Bay Area my home for the last 18 years. I miss the south but get back to Florida & North Carolina often.
I am always cooking and playing around in the kitchen and if I don’t record what I do I may never remember it again so I started this blog as a personal record for myself and also to share with family and friends. I find inspiration for recipes everywhere and I love when my new issues of bon appetite and Food and Wine arrive-often I will cook everything as it is written and then try and change it up to fit my personal taste. I will always put a link to a recipe I am inspired by on the site so you can go and see it how it was originally written. Sometimes I just make things up based on what I have on hand. I love hearing from my readers so please feel free to comment, even if you are not happy with me or my recipe. I will try to make it better if something does not come out!
I am always experimenting in the kitchen and on my friends. Sometimes with disastrous results (Caramel Cake anyone?) but often with surprisingly good results. My theory is you can’t mess up too badly if you start with great ingredients. I can’t even remember how many times a recipe has gone wrong only to resurrect it in some new and unexpected way. Often my screw-ups have led to some of my best creations.
Thanks for visiting my little corner of the world.
