I'm a wife, mom and full-time employee for a school district. I grew up in the restaurant business, but I cook for the sheer enjoyment and sometimes therapeutic value. I love to cook and bake equally. Since I live in the agricultural Salinas Valley (CA), I'm blessed to have fresh and organic fruits and vegetables pretty much year-round. I commute to the Monterey-Pacific Grove area for work, where I can find fresh seafood. I enjoy simple weeknight meals that I can put on the table within 30 minutes. On weekends, I enjoy baking bread, making homemade ice cream or preparing slow-cooked braised meals-- because I have the time. I avoid processed food and a lot of box mixes, because I care about what's on the label. My husband and grown son are my inspiration to cook, because they appreciate everything that I make. My food blog is "A Feast for the Eyes" at www.foodiewife-kitchen.blogspot.com
Since my mother was from Bavaria, my family loves my Austrian Goulash, German potato salad, homemade soft pretzels, homemade spaetzle and red cabbage. But the Mexican side of me (dad), makes a darn good enchiladas, and carnitas. I love to bake pies with scratch pastry, moist cakes, scones, and breads.
