About Amanda

Hi there!

I'm Amanda....a 30 something, mom of a toddler, and wife of a guy who works with bands for a living.  I am also a self proclaimed foodie!  I was born and raised in Troy, New York, but now live in the heart of Austin, Texas.

I first discovered my love of cooking around 12 years old.  I liked to eat and try different foods, but then shows like "Great Chefs" caught my eye.  I knew I was hooked when The Food Network started and I could not stop watching.  I started to play around in the kitchen and use new skills I learned from watching cooking shows.  I would cook for my parents and friends any chance I had.

Fast forward to today, and I am still in action.   Cooking has become a major part of my life.  I enjoy it whole heartedly and it allows me to show my creative side.  I am completely self taught, learning by watching, reading and simply doing.  Although I enjoy going out to good restaurants here in Austin, I cook at home most days of the week.

You can usually find me at Whole Foods, the Cedar Park or Mueller Farmers Markets, or checking out the food trucks in and around Austin.

As much as I love sharing this blog with all of you, I am also hoping to share my love of cooking with my daughter, who is already showing signs of a foodie in training!
