About Me

Welcome to Perfecting the Pairing!  I hope you enjoy the recipes and pairings posted here.  I do not claim to be a pro chef, writer, or photographer but I absolutely love to cook and to share recipes with friends and family.  Since I have little to no artistic or musical talent (it runs in the family), I find that cooking is my creative outlet.  I can spend countless hours reading cookbooks, cooking blogs, cooking magazines or watching cooking shows.  I never seem to tire of it!  I love trying new things and putting meal plans together, whether it is for a week of healthy meals, making dinners for my fiance, or a dinner party with friends. 

I toyed with the idea of starting a cooking blog for over a year.  I knew that I needed some sort of foundation, some kind of cornerstone idea that would keep readers (and myself) interested and engaged.  My original idea was to pair every recipe with a song because next to sharing recipes, I love to share favorite music.  I expanded on this a bit to include not only music but tips, techniques, kitchen tools, cocktails and anything else I think improves the recipe.  I can’t promise to provide life-changing news on every post but I may just convince you of the necessity of spatulas, vanilla fig balsamic vinegar and reggae music. 

I live in the fantastic city of Chicago with roots on a farm in the Midwest.  I am a newlywed, married to MY Perfect Pairing.  I love cooking (obviously), travel, reading, and entertaining.  There is nothing better than spending time with family and friends… if it is on a beach, even better.  

I am always looking for that next perfect pairing!
