About Me

Coffee in Rome

Silicon Valley Mom with 3 kids on the edge of adulthood!  When not thinking about food, you can find me rowing, taking photos, reading, cycling, hanging with friends, complaining about my kids and drinking lots of coffee.  To support my addiction and hobbies, I work as a pediatric oncology pharmacist. The pharmacists & techs I work with are all phenomenal (shout out to BC) and have definitely delayed thoughts of retirement. Beyond that there are the precious patients and their families whose courage in the face of adversity never ceases to amaze me.

The 3Jamigos refers to my kids as their names all begin with J. They have flown the coop and are now in college, effectively ending my career as school volunteer, coach, team mom, unpaid Uber driver, sherpa, nurse and maid. Now my job is cheerleader, confidant and advice line support for “Mom how do I make…” as they hurtle towards adulthood and independence.

For the most part this blog is about food.  I like to cook and I love to bake.  I have an addiction to cookbooks and kitchen gadgets but I guess there are far worse addictions in life.  Recipes I tend towards are usually simple and straight forward and are foods I grew up with or that I make for my kids.  Down home comfort food.  Hope you will give some of the recipes a try!
