About Krista

Hello All!!!!

I graduated from Texas State University in San Marcos, TX December 2009. I am currently applying for grad school programs in Occupational Therapy. My Nerd of 5 years and I finally wed on July 3, 2010, honey-mooned in Paris for a month, and moved permanently to San Francisco in August 2010. Basically,
I hail from a small town famous for sausage. Yes, sausage. Until about 3 years ago, I seriously ate every meal in my car or the restaurant I was working at!!! My other half, Nerd, decided cooking looked like fun; I soon realized the fun to be had, and inevitably took over the kitchen!!! I am still learning, and would love to share my journey of learning to cook with ya’ll!! The recipes I post are real. Obviously they are real, but I mean, everyday occurrences in my kitchen. This includes but is not limited to: all-time favorite recipes from my roots, recipes from magazines, friends, family members, and more than likely other blogs:)

Please leave feedback, as I am always a fan of learning the error of my ways!

    Hi Krista,
    I joined Spark People earlier this month. I’ve really enjoyed counting calories and water intake, fitness logs etc. I am also a member of Premeire Lady (westgate). I love the cardio funk class. Have you tried it yet? Anyway, I am on my way there if I could get off Facebook and Sparkpeople!
    I love to cook. I would love to put together a cookbook one day too. My current favorite guide to cooking is Martha Stewart’s Everyday food. I love picking out the healthy meals I plan for the week. They are always getting me outside the box to try new ingredients. I bought wheat germ and bulgur and have cooked with them.

    HEY!! Explain to me orange zest. I don’t get it. I know… pathetic. Help… 🙂

    HAHA! I love your pathetic-ness. Zesting a citrus fruit adds a great PUNCH of flavor. You zest with a cheese grater or there are actual zesting tools, just run the citrus over the grater until you get down to the pith – which is the whitish layer of skin underneath the shiny outermost layer! YUM!
