About Me

Fireplace Cuddle

I'm Michelle.
Welcome to my kitchen

I’m a wife, mom, writer & culinary instructor.  Like many of us, food takes center stage in most of my memories.  It is what I build my days around.  It’s been a thrilling journey with a lot of in-betweens around the world that has brought me to this ancient, provincial labyrinth of a house in Guadalajara, Mexico, where flour-sprinkled students giggle over the therapeutic release of smacking their burdens into pizza dough, where the wild parrots’ morning journey is as dependable as the church bells for keeping time, and where something delicious is pretty much always coming out of the oven.
