Hello, my name is Lou! I am in my twenties, and I’m a special education teacher for Kindergarten – 2nd grade children with Autism. It’s a job that I sort of fell into and then fell in love with. My students are little rays of sunshine with great personalities and they make me laugh every day.
I love my life, as hectic as it seems sometimes. I have a wonderful boyfriend, a supportive and loving family, and beautiful friends. I love food: eating it, cooking it, reading about it, researching it, watching it on television, and seeking it out in fun, new places.
This site is not solely a place to find recipes or my latest eats, but a place to discover the things that put the zest into my life: running, family, friends, and travel, to name a few. I strive to maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle, but just like anyone else, I have had my slip-ups in the past. I work hard at maintaining a positive mental attitude about food, myself, and my daily activities, and my goal is to find a balance between work and play, pastries and vegetables! There’s a place in my heart and stomach for both!!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy what you see!
