The Weekend Gourmet

“The Weekend Gourmet started in August 2010 as a way to share recipes I made with my friends and family. Since then, it has grown into something bigger that I’m very proud of. I live in Texas, and I feature my adaptations of recipes that I find in cookbooks and online, along with a few Weekend Gourmet original recipes. I love to travel and dine out, so sometimes I feature posts on particularly good restaurants meals or the foods we eat when we travel. I enjoy cooking more than baking, but I do try to bake at least once a month for the blog…mainly as a way to stretch myself in the kitchen and get out of my comfort zone. The food that I cook is full of lots of big flavor…if there’s a way to add another dimension or extra flavor to a recipe, I’ll try to find it! My motto is, Life is too short to eat bad food!” I tend to write the way I talk: like we’re sitting around my kitchen cooking and eating together. I like to have fun in the kitchen, and I don’t take myself too seriously. I recently made my television debut, cooking my Kitchen Sink Jambalaya for Mardi Gras on a local morning show. I’m not sure exactly where the blog is going, but I’m taking it as it comes and enjoying every single minute!!”
