David and me (right) with our new puppy, Russell at the Dane County Humane Society, Madison, Wisconsin.

I started a blog a few years ago.  It was not easy to use so I decided to switch to WordPress.  This is the result.  I hope I made the right call.

I wanted a place to share what I was learning about food and what I was tasting.  I don’t know much about blogging and I’m an amateur cook.  I’m still learning so this site may have some major changes coming up.   It is a start.

I live with my husband, David, in Madison, Wisconsin.  It is in a beautiful part of the country and it’s a great city.   We have two great dogs (Darwin and Russell, the puppy above) and they are lucky that Madison loves its dog parks.  I grew up in California but I’ve also had the chance to live in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Atlanta, Georgia and Hiroshima, Japan.  We have also traveled around the USA and elsewhere, so you may see some recipes inspired from where I have lived and our travels.

This has been fun so far.  I’ll see, and definitely taste, what happens next!

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog today! I’m going to be trying a new batch of hominy later this week but I have lots of onions (30 pounds) and winter squash (60 pounds) from last summer that need to be cooked and frozen first before they go bad. Then the hominy.
