About me

Introduction I am a writer, cook and gardener and live with my husband on two acres outside Austin, Texas on Lake Travis. Several years ago we bought a neglected horse farm. We tore down, rebuilt and fashioned a comfortable home. We kept the stalls and paddocks and barn in memory of the beautiful horses that once lived here. But now there's now a vegetable garden, a field of native grasses and wildflowers, and a rustic outdoor kitchen where, with always I nice breeze, I cook and watch the sun set behind a bank of hills. We keep a 40 year old refurbished sail boat about a mile down the road and, when we can, navigate the channels of deep water left on our lake. Growing food, gardening, the humbling experience of all of it, has changed the way I live and cook and eat and I want to share it with others.
