What I love most about what I do is opening eyes to a new idea, introducing a person, or putting the image of a lesser-known place in front of readers. There’s a lighter side of living and humanity that lifts us up, and sharing those images enables a part of that truth to shine through storytelling.

My work focuses on places, people, family and food. I’m interested in hunger awareness, healthy food for all, and also engaged in the discussion of food allergies.

    Austin days steam the BBQ sauce right out of you. If you’ve survived summer desert heat without too much complaining, Austin may meet all your markers. So far, I’m awarding the city my top shelf chiles.

    Thanks, Deb! We’re making our way in Texas. The new test cookery has opened, with a few hits and misses. What’s cooking at your place? The adventure’s always fabulous when you’re at the helm.

    Hi Mary Ann-

    Just discovered your site. I am new to Austin as well. Do you know of any groups or dining clubs where those who are new to town can meet friends? I am 42 with kids off to college. Love live music, interesting food, being outside. I live five minutes from downtown. Thanks for your tips.
    Best regards-
    Julie S.

    Greetings from Philadelphia. Looking for some eclectic recipes to try out and I stumbled upon your blog. Lately I’ve been trying to cook more interesting things – will definitely try some of these recipes and hopefully they will turn out solid!

    Welcome, OneFoot.
    There’s one thing I won’t do and that is post a recipe that I haven’t tested personally. If you’re catching a good vibe from Philly connections, try my spicy egg drop soup, inspired by one of my most trusted food sources in Philadelphia. Happy sampling!

    Love the new look! (Even though it’s really hard to browse when hungry!!)

    Hey, Maggie! Thanks for that. Hungry? I think I see a bran-raisin muffin in your future.
