Welcome to my blog of culinary adventures! My name is Cara, and I am a pint-sized Texan with a huge appetite. My passion for food began as a child when I grew incredibly bored with cake mixes and other pre-packaged foods my parents would “make” for me. I started baking cookies and cakes from scratch at a young age, following recipes, watching KLRN cooking shows and good old-fashioned trial and error.
My love for food went beyond the kitchen as well. Having only grown up with Tex-Mex food and overcooked barbecue, I felt like I had so much to learn about the flavors of the world. In college I went out and tried every cuisine I could find, even taking a few classmates along for the ride. Tasting these worldly flavors educated me tremendously, and I took that knowledge into my kitchen.
Take a look around and I hope you enjoy taking a peek into my foodie antics. If I can teach someone just a snippet of what I have experienced over the years, then I have fulfilled my purpose in life: to expand the minds, and taste buds, of people everywhere.
