I am super excited to introduce you to our newest contributor, my dear friend Scarlett. This special lady makes me laugh, makes me think, and comes up with recipes that make me drool. I know she is going to be a wonderful addition to the Ramblings team. Come by every Monday to check out her column here and be sure to drop by her blog, Confessions of a Shieldmaiden. Please give her a warm welcome!
Scarlett is a 30-year-old single girl who loves dancing in the Seattle rain. By day, she’s a human resources and customer services rockstar for a large US outdoor retailer. After hours, she’s a road-trip-taking, adventure seeking, music-addicted-dancing-queen and foodie-on-a-budget. Having traveled to every corner of the US, she’s developed a cooking repertoire steeped in many local flavors and cultural influences. In true Seattle fashion, her primary addictions are caffeine and local music and can only rarely be seen without coffee in hand or iPod in her ears. Though she has no human children, she comes home every night to two cats and huge black dog who is a constant companion on her travels. Her outlook on life is to seize every opportunity, because once you step out your front door, you never know where the road is going to lead. Appreciate every moment, try everything once (including the food), never look back, and never say goodbye.
Once a week, Scarlett will be taking her love for experimenting in the kitchen and broadcasting it in her blog, hoping to share her passion and enthusiasm for scrumptious eats. Every week she’ll be taking a standard recipe to a new level, making it healthier, more cost effective, and deliciously possible to create in your own kitchen. She hopes you’ll step into her kitchen and share your own stories of culinary adventures (and MISadventures, too!) and help create a little kitchen magic.
