Cook in a Bar

A homesick Texan and a recovering lobbyist, my professional energy has moved from federal appropriations to food writing and recipe development. No more high heels, power lunches, and policy memos. I spend time in a flour-covered apron, narrate my essays for my dog, Charley, and test recipes on my husband.

I share my love of cooking and drinking with my bartender brother. Most of our conversations take place over drinks and we seem to only talk about what we will or what we did make for dinner. I created a blog, A Cook Walks Into A Bar, as an attempt to share our musings beyond the barstool.
