I am so grateful for the wonderful people in my life who support me on all my adventures. On this adventure in particular, special thanks go to:
- My mom, who was my first teacher in the kitchen; who continues to inspire me with her enthusiasm for cooking, baking, and all things chocolate; and who may be even more excited about this blog than I am!
- My aunt, who changed her career to pursue her passion for food, and who invited me into her kitchen one summer to learn a little about being a professional baker
- My girlfriend, who listened with kindness when I was struggling to find new inspiration in graduate school, who shares her creative ideas about recipes, and who believes in me more than I thought possible
- Several fabulous friends, who are willing to take a risk to test my in-progress recipes and offer sound advice and new perspectives for recipe improvement
My thanks and love to you all.
