I’m from Austin, Texas which is rated one of the top foodie cities in the U.S. so there’s always inspiration for new recipes. While Austin is a booming city, my neighborhood is like a throwback to the 50’s and 60’s.
My neighbors know each other and my three kids and their friends cut through neighbors’ yards to get to the creek and the park. It’s a great hometown feel in the middle of a booming city. My kids are grown now but I still love my neighborhood.
I love baking and every dessert is my friend. I also love traveling -especially with my daughter Becks. We have another blog called Two Girls Traveling where we share our traveling adventures.
My sister started Chocolate, Chocolate and More to share her baking adventures. When she died suddenly in 2015, I ran the blog in her honor. All the proceeds went to her children. My niece, Grace, took over Chocolate, Chocolate, and More in 2020 so I started this blog to preserve and continue my work.
Since I spent five years blogging about desserts, this blog is a bit dessert heavy. I do love desserts but I also love good food of all kinds. I plan to add recipes featuring fresh ingredients and foods I discover in my travels.
As I said, I love to travel. I lived in Cambodia for two years. Some of my posts were written while I lived there. I had a very basic kitchen so if I could make a dish in Cambodia, you will certainly be able to make it wherever you live.
I’ve visited 48 of the 50 United States and two US territories (US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico) as well as Israel, England, Scotland, Wales, Canada, Mexico, Germany, Austria, The Czech Republic, Lithuania, France, Turkey, Belgium, Hungary, Spain, Vietnam, Taiwan, Japan, China, South Korea, Laos, Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia, Macau, The Philippines, Indonesia, South Africa and Eswatini.
