About Me

“Food, in the end, in our own tradition, is something holy. It’s not about nutrients and calories. It’s about sharing. It’s about honesty. It’s about identity.”
Louise Fresco

I have always been interested in food – how it’s produced, cooked, shared. The more I cook the more curious I become about the world. I can’t make a curry or a sweet potato pie without thinking of their origins. My story is deeply connected to food and I’ve found the same in others. This blog is my attempt to document my curiosity.

The Recipes:  I am not a professional cook.  I am a home cook who loves traveling the globe in dishes.  I’m also a Southern girl so there’s going to be a lot of love given to pork and cast iron.  Some of the recipes are original and others are not. I will always give credit to the source and if you share one of my original recipes or posts, please do the same by providing a link to my site.

The Restaurant Recommendations: I only suggest places I genuinely like so you’ll only see positive reviews here.


  1. Dear Fran, Great blog! It was nice to meet you at Gocciolina last night. Maybe we’ll run into each other there again some time.

  2. Hi Fran! It was so nice meeting you tonight. We had so much fun talking with you. Can’t wait to hang out again soon. – Melissa

    P.S. Your blog is fantastic – can’t wait to read more!

  3. Hey Fran, wanted to drop by and say hello. I am at the PD Conference and Robert told me about your awesome food blog. You have a new follower 🙂

    • Hi Tanya – Thanks so much for the follow. You have a new follower too. You’re blog is great – I love the name too. I’ve been busy doing other food related things and haven’t blogged lately but hope to get back to blogging soon. Maybe we can talk in the future about you doing a guest post on my blog and hopefully we can meet at the conference.

      • Thank you!!! I followed you on the Facebook. I am actually in the process of moving to a self-hosted site so I probably won’t be on here too often. Same domain name. Let’s stay in contact…can’t wait to read and see your new post 😊
