About Me

My name is Rachel Pounds and I am a working mo, lover of food, and reader.  My family and I live in the Pacific Northwest and I have Lupus. In my spare time I enjoy mixing and matching flavors especially in sweet treats to create delicious foods.    We do a lot of entertaining which gives me a chance to try out new foods on our friends. We host a weekly board game night so I’m always trying out new dessert recipes.  I truly believe that the best part about creating a dish is sharing it with your friends and loved ones.

I am sure this blog will evolve over time, but I hope it can be a place where I can share recipes, the mishaps I have in the kitchen (it happens to all of us!), discussions on various food topics (see my first post), with some books reviews and the occasional travel section thrown in.  This will also give me a chance to up my photography game.

Thanks for visiting!
