I’m a middle school science teacher living in the San Francisco Bay Area. I run a lot, love vegetables (and dessert), read books and knit whenever I find the time, and take way too many pictures of food. Oh, and my husband Mike and I are the proud parents of the cutest little girl in the world, born September 12, 2011.
Mike and I spent a year traveling and teaching English in Asia in 2009 and it was pretty incredible year. We spent time in Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, and South Korea and ate a ton of amazing food, met a lot of wonderful people, and saw some phenomenal places. There were some struggles as well, but I would do it again in a heartbeat.
I was lucky to grown up in a family that valued good food and always put home-cooked meals on the table. My mom taught me some basic kitchen skills when I was growing up, but it wasn’t until a home ec class at school that I fell in love with cooking. I cook a mix of healthy vegetarian recipes, indulgent desserts, and love to play around with flavors from cuisines all over the world.
