Hi! I’m Liz.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had the travel bug. As a child, my parents introduced me to as many places, cultures and flavors as possible. Now that I’m a so-called ‘adult,’ I still can’t get enough!

After graduating from university, I took off to explore the world on my own, living in places like Eastern Turkey, Brooklyn, London, and most recently, Northern Virginia, where I’m now living and working as a writer.

When I’m not exploring wondrous destinations, I’m either dreaming up my next travel itinerary or developing original recipes and testing out new flavors in my kitchen. I love incorporating the tastes of some of my favorite destinations around the globe into my recipes.

Let me say that I’m no chef. But, I do love food. I love cooking, eating, photographing and playing with (styling) my food. It’s habit forming.

Here are a few more tidbits about my life and my loves:

  • I’m a fountain of knowledge when it comes to music trivia. Try me.
  • I cook with booze. Often.
  • I adore autumn.
  • I’m a cat lady.
  • I want to retire to the Azores, the Faroe Islands or Chile.
  • I love rain.
  • I love snow more.
  • I want to be a farmer.
  • I want to be a potter.
  • The best book ever written is The Heart is a Lonely Hunter.
  • Popsicles ARE a food group.
  • I scuba dive.
  • I surf.
  • I sail.
  • I like water.
  • I want to live on the coast.
  • In a boat.
  • I should invest in a bitchin’ kite.
  • And a road bike.
  • I’m southern. Only now that I’m getting older do I appreciate it.
  • Hocus Pocus is the best movie ever made.
  • I love single malt – Tallisker is my jam.

Now let the food and travel fun begin! Thanks for stopping by!
