I'm an amateur cook who loves sharing good food with friends and family. I was born in Alabama, but grew up in the Pacific Northwest, where I live now. I first learned to cook buttermilk biscuits at the age of 4 from my grandmother, who was a true Southerner, and have enjoyed being in the kitchen ever since. When I'm not cooking, I work at a software company as a program manager. My husband and I have two kids, ages 2 and 6.
