I teach high school English in downtown Little Rock. I love to travel, and my favorite part of traveling is trying the local cuisine. I have an insatiable appetite for the obvious (good food) but also reading, writing, teaching, and spending time with my husband, Brian, and two dogs, Gatsby and Cheyenne.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Italian food. My mother lived in Florence for 10 years and she gave me some excellent cooking tips for traditional Italian dishes. I live in the deep south, so I am learning to cook some of the more popular dishes. However, I am not a fan of frying my food, so I am a bit limited to the traditional "southern" dishes; more so the Hispanic/Mexican influence on the southern cuisine.
