“No one is born a great cook, one learns by doing. Learn how to cook, try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless, and above all, have fun!”Julia Child, My Life in France
My mom loves to tell people that as a little girl, my dream was to be a cowgirl pizza maker.

My heart lives for exploring new places, flavors, and textures. If that sounds up your alley, take a gander at some of my posts where I attempt to marry my love of food with my passion for writing!
