I live the good life in Silicon Valley, California with my husband Larry and our dog Coco. My favorite things besides cooking are drinking wine, making cocktails and playing outdoors. I have a bit of a cookbook fetish, but my most favorite source of recipes is Fine Cooking magazine.
In January 2013 I escaped from the world of high tech and software and went to culinary school. Read more about my experiences here.
About Pork Cracklins
A lot of people ask about the blog name. I’ve never had pork cracklins. They sound revolting. But early one morning in my sleep, I uttered the phrase “pork cracklins…”. Larry, privy to many of my nightime monologues, was awake and it just seemed like a good name for a food blog. As a result, the most popular search term on the blog is “pork cracklins”. Larry takes most of the photos that appear with the blog entries. We use a Canon Powershot G12 camera and are experimenting with a Nikon D90.
The Birth of Pork Cracklins
Pork Cracklins began as (and continues to be) a means to catalog what I cook. Before Pork Cracklins, I found myself scrambling to figure out where I got this recipe or that recipe.. and more often than not I failed to locate it. Now it’s as easy as searching the blog.

Endorsements, reviews, sponsored posts
I occasionally post reviews, product promotions and endorsements, cookbook reviews and giveaways, and posts on food-related organizations and events. If I do, it’s because it’s something that I like, use, or believe in. My opinions and reviews are my own and cannot be purchased.
