About Me

"I still think that one of the pleasantest of all emotions is to know that I, I with my brain and my hands, have nourished my beloved few, that I have concocted a stew or a story, a rarity or a plain dish, to sustain them truly against the hungers of the world.”
-M. F. K. Fisher

Hey! I'm Trisha, and I spend an inordinate amount of time dreaming up recipes in my head. I adore avocados, strawberry picking, pecorino cheese, warm brownies with ice cream, and picnics. I try to eat a lot of vegetables but I really love pasta and cheese and chocolate. I'm also a fan of running and yoga.

I'm a messy cook and an even messier eater, a major empathizer and thus frequent crier. I'm continually running five minutes late, never fill up my gas tank before the red light comes on, and have a tendency to drop/spill things into the interminable gap between the counter and the fridge.  I am frequently, as my husband likes to say, "a hot mess," but he manages to love me anyway.  He's the dish-washer/taste-tester/hand model/spell-checker around these parts, and I like him a lot.

My love of food stems back to my Italian grandmother who once told me, "Anytime you are eating something in public, you should offer some of it to the person sitting next to you." In my world, food=love. If I love you (and I do) I will feed you.  Like my grandmother, I will offer you seconds and thirds, and most likely try to send some food home with you, virtual friends included.

While I try to eat mostly whole foods and limited amounts of meat, you'll find a variety of dishes here. I'm of the philosophy that no particular food is bad food.  (Though the tomatoes from my parents' garden are arguably the best.) 

I'm a former middle school Language Arts teacher, and while I loved teaching my kids about stories and how to write their own, I didn't love managing crazy adolescent behavior.  I've switched gears and am now an attorney practicing education law. I still really miss teaching,  but I'm doing my best to become a better writer and advocate, with lots of help from good food and good friends along the way. I hope you'll join me.
