Although I tend to favor gin for cocktails, vacations get me to venture outside my routine. A trip to Jamaica last year introduced me to the Rum Punch cocktail. I'm sure the punch part refers to the combination of fruit juices, but punch also describes the powerful rum flavor.
Speaking of Jamaica, this is me enjoying a gorgeous sunset in Negril.
28 Cooks is hosting Behind the Apron , encouraging bloggers to put a face to the blog names by posting a picture and saying something about yourself. I always enjoy hearing a little about bloggers I read, so here's a little about me as well.
My husband (MD for Mandolin Don), Scout, and I live in a historic neighborhood in the city of St. Louis. While a 100-year-old house comes with challenges, we do have ferocious lions guarding the mantel.
I'm new to blogging and veganism. After being a vegetarian for many years, I became vegan in January and started blogging in March. You won't find complicated recipes here, just me sharing vegan food that I like. I imagine my blog saying, "Hey there. Look at this delicious vegan food. Not scary at all, is it? Wanna try some?" I love seeing what fellow bloggers are cooking up and hearing from readers in comments.
When I'm not working as a psychologist or in my free time doing something related to food, these days I'm probably looking for some live music in town, making a list for one thing or another, and trying to convince Scout that she's not the boss of me. (Fat chance.)
