About Me

Oh happy day!
I live in Denver with my fiance husband, Adam, and our two dogs: Consuela the chihuahua and Potato the pug.

I have a fantastic, rewarding job: teaching high school English. I've been teaching for ten years. The classroom is my other home. I work at a great school where I get to choose all my own books--so my class is always reading books I personally love. I founded the English Dept at one of our new high schools a few years ago, and this project--starting a new high school--has been the most meaningful, important, (and difficult) project of my life. We graduated our first class in 2015. I feel incredibly fortunate and grateful that my life's work gets to be teaching.

But when lesson plans are tucked away for the night, my favorite way to relax is by cooking something delicious.

I started this blog to keep track of what I make, and to absorb some of my food-obsession energy. I want to talk about cooking and food ALL THE TIME. I am weirdly over interested in what all my colleagues had for dinner the night before--maybe writing about cooking will get some of that under control.
I hope you enjoy my recipes!

  2. Hi Kathleen!

    I am working on casting for a new television series, The Great Holiday Baking Show. Love Productions is looking for the best amateur/home bakers in the US from all 50 states to compete in a multi-week baking competition for a major network. Each week will be holiday themed.

    We’re trying to get the news out to a variety of amateur bakers across the US and I’m hoping you may be able to help by posting the news of our casting on your website or blog or FB page, etc.

    All information including the application form is available for download now at www.greatholidaybakingshow.com.

    I have a flyer as well I can send.

    Any help spreading the word is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you so much in advance, feel free to contact with any questions!
