I grew up in New York City where I developed a taste for fabulous food. From ethnic restaurants to my family’s cooking, I gained a sense of what I love. I then spent four years in small town Winona, Minnesota that had few restaurants but plenty of local farms to fill the fridge and a community of fellow foodies to explore with. I’ve now lived in St. Louis, Missouri for the past eight years where I regularly teach cooking classes, make television appearances, and write a popular cooking column. I’ve won a teaching award, hosted countless dinner parties, and daydream about what I am going to cook and eat next. At night I curl up with my husband and three children and read to them from my favorite cookbooks, which I believe, if one looks hard enough, are filled with stories, stories told through food.

    So excited to have discovered your blog…this is fabulous!

    I remember when I first got turned onto pomegranates. I think it was in fourth or fifth grade and I thought I was just THE coolest thing for knowing what they were and would bring them to school and then with a hideous amount of grandeur dole out the seeds in multiples of one or two to my closest friends. Ha.

    Looking forward to perusing your blog more…great stuff you’ve got here!
