My name is Anne. I live just outside of Philadelphia with my fiancé, Ryan, and our cat, Cali. I am a scientist by day. Yes, you read that correctly, a SCIENTIST. Usually that statement elicits a few giggles or at least a smirk from whoever is on the receiving end of it. I love my job and feel privileged to be able to say so, but I must admit that it stifles my creativity. Cooking is the answer to my right brain’s desperate cries for help in avoiding what seems to be an inadvertent hostile takeover by the left. I love gardening, cheese, wine and good food (emphasis on the good) although not exclusively and not necessarily in that order. I have never taken a cooking class, and I’m not a chef. My passion for cooking is ingrained deep in my heritage. My grandparents owned a hotel/restaurant/bar until the late 1960s, and growing up my mother made everything from scratch. Thus, I strive to do the same.
