About Me

So who is Suzy, anyway?

Office drone, originally from California, now living outside Baltimore, Maryland. Married, no kids, about to hit a major birthday milestone. Lover of chocolate, red meat, wine, sushi, sarcasm, and football.

What's this blog all about?

Basically a place for me to document and celebrate my kitchen successes...and any failures that might happen to occur. I hope to connect with other food bloggers and improve my writing and photography skills as we go along. Posts on other topics (movies, books, football, random thoughts) may also appear.

Is Suzy a professionally trained chef? If not, why are we reading her blog?

Nope, no official training. Just a passion for good food and love for compliments and praise. I did win first prize at the County Fair for my chocolate chip cookies (the original "Suzy's Goodies") at age 14. Suck it, losers!

Why food?

I enjoy cooking and baking and reading new recipes, and I love getting people together for food, fun and conversation. So many of my happy memories from childhood revolve around food...the smell of onions and celery sauteeing in butter on Thanksgiving morning, the pride I felt when I first made pancakes for my dad, family outings when we got to stop for ice cream...food is such a big part of our lives, so much more than mere sustenance.
