Welcome to Life is but a Dish!
I create easy, approachable recipes for the everyday home cook. Behind every recipe, photo and blog post is me – just an everyday mom, home cook and girl who’s obsessed with food. Let me tell you a little bit about what makes me, me!
I’m an east coast girl at heart, living on the west coast. Born and raised in Maryland, I now live in Los Angeles, California with my two daughters Zoe and Ava, my dog Connor, and my amazing redheaded husband, Zach. I went to the University of Michigan where I played on the women’s soccer team. Go Blue! My husband and I met on the soccer field in a co-ed league here in LA, started dating in 2006, got married on New Year’s Eve 2008 and have now been married 10 years. Woah.
I’m in sweats or workout clothes every. single. day. If I wear anything else I feel dressed up. My hair is in an extremely high messy bun 99.9% of the time. When I wake up in the morning the first thing I think is ‘what’s for dinner?’ I love bread, chocolate, and cheese. Who doesn’t? I hate olives, but I really want to like them. I’ve never had a cup of coffee. My lifelong dream is to spend the day cooking with Ina Garten at her house in the Hamptons.
My mom and I have the same birthday – January 31st. I have an extremely Type A personality. Elbows weird me out. Don’t ask. I’m super shy, until you get to know me. Then I’m actually pretty funny. Rainy days are my absolute FAVORITE, thunder, lightening and all. If you invite me over to your house, I’ll probably make you a banana bread and it will be your favorite. (Recipe on the blog)
Before I ventured into the blogging world I was an elementary school teacher (1st and 2nd grade). I was born to teach, it’s my first passion and I feel so lucky to be able to teach all of you about cooking and food. Literally my two favorite things in one. TEACHING and FOOD.
