About Me

Hello! My name is Jessica and I am going to tell you some things here that I wonder about when I read other blogs and wonder who is behind them.

I normally hold the camera and so I'm usually absent from the photos. Here we are during a recent visit to Chicago where a friendly tourist snapped this shot. It was stormy (hence the red umbrella and windblown hair) and we were forbidden from getting closer to "the bean."

I am 29 years old and have been married to Alex, a regular character in the blog, for just over a year. (I should set a reminder to update these numbers as time goes on.)  I grew up in Memphis, Tennessee, and I left to go to college in a small town in Indiana, where I became vegetarian 10 years ago. After four years in the corn fields, I was ready for the big city and relocated to Philadelphia, where I lived for the next four years and met Alex. Together, we moved to Cincinnati two years ago.

I love to eat, and I love to cook. Sometimes I make quick meals, but thankfully my job affords me time to cook good meals with whole foods for us most of the time. I'll also tell you about what I find eating out from time to time.

I started blogging a year ago, and it's been a great learning experience for me. Only since I've started blogging have I started cooking vegan. I'm really excited to take better control over what I feed myself, at home at dining out.

We have three cats, three computers, three cameras, and a small kitchen.
