It has been observed in my family that our conversations always seem to turn to food. When my parents and I get together, we talk about restaurants, what we got at the market, what we cooked that week…you get the picture. My husband and I while away long drives by planning out our meals for the following days. And if I’m talking to someone and they show any interest in food at all, I have a hard time reigning myself in. It’s embarrassing, a bit. But that’s why I started a food blog.
If you, too, find yourself obsessing about lunch while you’re eating breakfast, read cookbooks like fiction, and never go to a strange city without at least a dozen restaurant recommendations, welcome! You’re among friends. Feel free to leave comments (I love comments) or drop me a line through my contact page.
Further details: I was named after the author Jessamyn West, I have a husband, two cats and a dog, and we live in the Skagit Valley of Washington State, somewhere between Seattle and the Canadian border, in an old bungalow with a mint-green kitchen and a small tangled garden. I work as a professional photographer and handweaver, play and sing in a Celtic band, and I love books and gardening. My food writing and photos appear in various publications around the region.
