FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Culinerapy?
I've realized I can measure my life by what happens at the stove: a batch of cookies for a broken heart, a pitcher of sangria for a reunion with friends, a pot of soup for some hard-earned comfort. I find that most of the events in my life make their way into kitchen. So here I am with a spoon in my hand, navigating my way through recipes and through life. These are my food stories.
Are you a trained chef?
No, I'm most definitely not a chef. I'm a writer and a home cook. Both my mom and my sister are much better cooks than I am, and I do my best to learn from them. I cook because I love to chop and stir and add things until it tastes good. I love the way cool, floury dough feels in my fingers. I love the way fresh strawberries smell, and the sound of sizzling onions in butter. I love the peace I feel when I stir a pot of something homemade, the reward of sitting down to eat something that was made with love with the people I love. But training? None. That means anything I can cook, you can cook.
Who takes the pictures on your site?
I do. I am extremely impatient when it comes to things like photoshop. I rely on natural light and a macro lense on my camera to make up for my limitations.
