Welcome to my blog!

I’m Caroline and I am super excited you’re here, reading this, right now. Oh wait, now I’m nervous.

A couple of years ago I started a blog with a friend of mine called A Cozy Kitchen. It was great, cause I got to discover a passion for food. More importantly though, I rediscovered a passion for writing and photography. I thought it might be cool to have a blog where I could write about other things like this, or take photos of stuff like this. I hope you think it’s cool too. I really, really do.

I am a completely self & Mom taught cook with no formal training. Sometimes this means I make really delicious and easy-to-make recipes. Other times, I don’t…but you probably won’t ever hear about those. Also – I’m a pescatarian. Don’t be scared, that’s just a snotty way of saying the only meats I eat are fish and seafood, so you won’t see many meat recipes on my site, but I PROMISE everything here is delicious. I may not eat much meat these days, but I’m a Southern-Italian raised on homemade pasta sauce and BBQ, so I know what good food tastes like.

When I started blogging back in 2009, I was living in Los Angeles. A year ago my husband Chase and I found out we would be inheriting a house in my hometown of Hendersonville, NC, and so we’ve since moved back. We moved from a small rental apartment and are now slowly renovating a large house with a few acres of land. To put things diplomatically, it has been an adjustment. I am still in denial about living half a mile away from my childhood home. When I can pull myself out of the anxiety cloud that home ownership brings with it, I try to update what we’ve been working on at the house. Please forgive me if I’m bad about this.

I take all of the photos you see on this blog. I have a Nikon D40 camera with a 100mm macro lens and 50mm lens. Sometimes I use my super fancy Speedlight Flash, but natural sunlight is my favorite. I’ve also been known to use my Iphone when it’s convenient.

If you want to keep up with my daily ramblings, you can follow me on Facebook or Twitter. You can also check out my profile on Tasty Kitchen.

Thanks for stopping by, I really like you a lot. For reals.
