Since I was born and raised in Texas, a love of good food was in my blood. My dad is a great cook and he taught me much of what I know today. The rest I figured out as I cooked for my family growing up and then roommates in college and today, for my husband. Cooking is a retreat for me. I love to turn up the music and have every ingredient from the pantry on the counter as I experiment with flavors and tastes. 

I try to create simple, delicious and beautiful food for everyone. Sometimes I will post more exotic or time consuming recipes but most should be easy enough for the beginner cook. I also hope to teach you some cooking techniques as well as open your eyes to new spices, vegetables and ethnic foods whenever possible. I will share some of my favorite recipes from my travels and new ones from my everyday life.

I have become  The Apron Gal, changing aprons based on the day, the meal or the event. I never knew how many aprons I had until one day I counted and realized I had acquired a dozen or so. As I looked at my aprons, each one told a story. One apron was from my MeMaw for Christmas. Another was from my husband when we were first dating. Another I bought during my travels in Europe. Those are just a few of the stories of my aprons. 

Each apron tells its own story and each is part of me.  I love cooking without inhibitions and my aprons help me do that as I seem to always end up covered in whatever I am cooking or baking. 

So that is how I became The Apron Gal. I will share weekly recipes and entertaining ideas along with anything else I think is worth sharing!

Take a look around and I hope you find some good food and come back again and again!
