About me and this blog

A managing editor by day, I am a scientist, hopeless romantic, aspiring home cook, and lover of golden retrievers, cheese, and bad (and good) TV at heart. I wanted to do what everyone else wants to do when they start a blog—share thoughts, pictures, and things I like while pretending people are listening to me. Someday, I hope to write a book.

I cook almost every day, I love to bake and read, I enjoy other people’s blogs, I spend too much money, I watch too much TV, I’m in classes to get my teaching license, I’m trying to find my future boyfriend, and I have funny stories about my friends (and myself). I, like everyone else I know, am struggling through this thing called my twenties and I’m trying to find purpose and meaning in my misdirected life.

Please feel free to comment or contact me to tell me what you like and what you disagree with, what you’re reading and watching, and what you’re up to.

About the food I cook

I use recipes handed down from my mother and friends, from cookbooks, from Cooking Light and other food magazines, from other blogs, from random places on this Internet, and from many other sources. I always attribute the recipe or include where I adapted it from. If you have any questions, let me know.

    I love your blog!! It’s probably my favorite I’ve stumbled upon on this site – perhaps because we have similar interests and your posts are actually interesting to read unlike most people’s. I’m an editor for a major newswire and also 25. I love to cook as well and enjoy your recipe posts!
