Over the years, I’ve spent too much time in biology, chemistry and physics labs, but I’ve learned that the best experimental setting is one that ends with a drool-inducing edible (or drinkable!) product. There are few greater joys than sharing foods that deliver smiles, sugar rushes and ultimately, tighter jeans– too many of which I have hanging in my closet.
After my home kitchen was remodeled, I started looking for any excuse to spend time in there and create something. Or maybe I was looking for an excuse to eat something?… The new space became my experimental lab, which is where recipe development and taste testing take place. You may notice a few articles of science displayed throughout. After all, no lab is complete without funky glassware, a mortar & pestle, and a nerd dressed in
a lab coat an apron. After “regular business hours,” I gladly turn in my latex gloves for an oven mitt, my white coat for a brown and pink polka-dotted apron, and my standard operating procedure for a recipe.
Things that make me happy include: lists, organizing, cleaning, Nutella, velour jumpsuits, conversations with strangers, writing utensils, my KitchenAid stand mixer, and smashed cheddar cheese Ruffles and sour cream. Yes. In a bowl. Eaten with a spoon.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your stay, and visit again soon!
