I was born and raised in Kansas and learned to cook alongside my mother. Now, along with my wonderful husband, I have taken the plunge into the city life in New York. These are my food adventures: in my own tiny kitchen, and in the many restaurants of the city.

What I've Been Up To

Been a bit of a drought here in posts lately. Feeling a little bogged down with the craziness of life (work, sister's upcoming wedding, friends in town), but have still been cooking! Lots of posts on the back-burner, but you can find a little of what I've been up to in a couple of other places.

The past couple of Pine Tar Press posts:
Cake Batter Crispy Treats

Tailgating Party Prep Tips
and Grilled Camembert Cheese


I also guest blogged for Everyday Desserts, featuring an open-faced sandwich of tomato bread with avocados and smoked paprika:


I also hosted Easter once again this year. Since I almost forgot about it and it creeped up on me pretty quickly we made it a pot-luck. I prepared a boneless lamb leg roast (with rosemary, garlic and orange zest), a vegan quinoa and beet salad (from one of my favorite blogs, Sprouted Kitchen), a couple of side salads, and a few appetizers (including David Lebovitz's Fig and Olive Tapenade). Friends brought an amazing array of cheeses, meats, homemade bread and beer, potatoes, vegetables, wines. It was a spread to be proud of.
Lots of laughs to be had.

 Will soon be back with new recipes, stay tuned!
