About Sarah




My name's Sarah and I'm cooking the books.  I read an article back in 2012 about how people own cookbooks, but they don't use them -- they're more for nostalgia than anything else.  I thought about all the cookbooks I have lining my cookbook shelves, and I thought, "Huh.  It'd be a shame to not use these."  So I'm going through my whole collection and cooking out of each one.

I moved from North Carolina to California in 2014, and my husband Dennis is my guinea pig for my food experimenting.  I also have two cats, Zelda and Oliver.

I wrote a novel that I finally finished this year (2016).  It's got some professional interest, so we'll see how that goes.

Things I'm obsessed with include Hamilton the musical, Gold Peak's Diet Iced Tea, things featuring the planets of the solar system that include Pluto, and the color pink.

Olives are the bane of my existence.

By day, I'm a Technical Writer, and by night, I'm reading about, writing about, or making and eating food.
