I started this blog partly because I wanted a place to store all of the cooking adventures I’ve had with my mom, but mostly because I love to eat, and I love to share my favorite foods with friends and family. In fact, if you’re my friend, I’ve probably tried to cook for you…or at least feed you some random store-bought item I thought was delicious (for better or for worse).
Now, I’m in the process of making this blog a forum where all of my friends can share their food knowledge with one another. Whether it’s a favorite wine, restaurant recommendation, product endorsement or an experimental recipe, I want all of us to be able to connect with one another in the most universal way possible – through our stomachs (and I guess by extension, our hearts).
…failing that, we can just all go get drunk together at the corner dive bar. I call tequila shots.

Would my husband be covered in warts and cysts, as well?

Luckily for me, as I obsessively cleaned my plate in a stress-induced frenzy, I discovered I have an insatiable culinary appetite. Here, you’ll find the stories of my eating adventures!
