Introduction I’ve been a few things in my life, a newspaper and magazine photographer, food blogger, restaurant worker, Army soldier, wife and mom. Now I’m gearing up to change courses as I head back to school for my PhD in food science. I don’t know if I’ll make it through, but I’m trying. It’s a bit embarrassing to be a mid-thirties mom in basic sciences and math courses. My undergraduate degree is in visual communication (photography), and at the time extra math and science electives were last on my mind to suffer through. I always thought, “What the heck do I need math for?” Well now I know what math is for and I’m paying the price by swallowing my pride to satiate this mad drive for more food knowledge. I'm not sure where this is all going, but I hope my future involves more food work in all forms, more photography, more writing and as always, more fun. What I do know is food blogging has opened a new world of friends, opportunity, travel, knowledge and culture for me.  If blogging is global and food connects us, then food blogging connects us the most of all. For this, I am grateful.
