Introduction

I created this blog as an exuse to prattle on about my two loves, food and fashion. Also, I wanted every girl to know that making delicious food and looking fabulous are NOT unattainable goals. I know how trite it is to say that if I can do it, anyone can do it, but honestly it's so. I am not a professional chef. It was a combination of my mom and Rachael Ray who taught me to cook, and if I've learned anything from these two incredible women it's that cooking is not rocket science. Rather, it's something to have fun and relax with. When I've had an unbearably long day, I love escaping to the kitchen and letting the soothing aromas (and maybe a glass of wine or two) calm my soul.

As far as looking fabulous goes, I'm not saying that Marc Jacobs is going to use me as his next muse, but I do understand the importance of putting my chicest self forward every day. Most importantly, I want people to know that having style does not require a model's tall thin frame or a bottomless wallet. While I wouldn't be human if I didn't wish for both sometimes, I know that it's all about accepting the body that you have, keeping it healthy, and dressing to bring out its best features. The recipe for looking chic and modern does not require going out and buying every "must have" of the season. Instead, building a classic base wardrobe and accenting it with fun, trendy pieces results in a closet full of clothes that will stand the test of time.
