I'm a registered dietitian- food is my life! While food has always been an important aspect of my family, my interest in cooking developed as I volunteered for Share Our Strength's Operation Frontline nutrition-through-cooking program for low-income families. I learned so much about cooking techniques while I was there and was really impressed by how much healthier it is to make your own food as opposed to eating out. Currently, I am lucky to work for the People's Community Clinic in Austin, where I pass that information on to patients so that they can create healthy, tasty meals on a budget. I have a wonderful boyfriend, Steven, and a precious blue heeler mix, Lucy, who faithfully taste-test my recipes. Even though I may be health conscious, don't expect ALL of my recipes to angelic little replicas of MyPyramid. That wouldn't be any fun, now would it? =)
