When people ask me what I do, I like to say I'm a writer. The truth is, I do many things.
In 2004, I began hosting casserole contests, and in 2008, my first cookbook, "Casserole Crazy: Hot Stuff for Your Oven" was published. My affinity for casseroles led to a love of vintage Pyrex, hence the name of this blog. Along with vintage Pyrex, I collect good whiskey, turquoise trinkets and the letter "Q."
These days, I am running a food website and trying to help get a culinary creative agency off the ground. The rest of the time, I'm just trying to be a good partner to my husband, keep my house somewhat presentable, eat good food and avoid going out in public looking like a complete schlub.
I have complicated relationships with wheat and dairy (I love them more than they love me) and on my 31st birthday, I decided to start living within my means.
a little background
In November of 2012, I married this guy. He's a teacher, and he's pretty great.
One morning, in the spring of 2013, while we were still paying off our wedding, I freaked out about my massive debt and decided it was time to stop spending and start saving money. You can read all about my freakout here.
I spent the summer of 2009 eating quite well on $50 a week, so I hope I can do this, too.
