Karen & John memorial day weekend 2013 - cropped

I’m Karen, and I love to cook. I created this site to share my cooking adventures with you!

I currently live in San Antonio, TX with my husband John and our cat Toby. We cook nearly every night, and I love trying new recipes. When we do eat out, I try to use restaurant dishes for new inspiration for our at-home cooking 🙂

We are always on the lookout for locally grown produce and locally raised meat & fish, but we also use some fun not-so-local ingredients, too. I have some Italian olive oil that I love, and some Italian balsamic vinegar that I can’t live without! I also have an addiction to French sea salt (fleur de sel) . We’re also always interested in trying new foods, new recipes, and new cuisines!

We also are growing produce in our garden, so I’m hoping that we have lots of great home-grown produce to use this summer, too! In general, we try to eat healthy foods, but on occasion we splurge a bit (see the desserts section!).

  1. Thanks for recently checking out and following my blog! I hope you get a chance to stop by again sometime and try a recipe or two for yourself! I look forward to following your future posts as well.
