I'm a native North Dakotan who has lived in Minneapolis, Minnesota for 10 years. I come from a German-Russian heritage. Family get-togethers always revolved around traditional German-Russian foods (mostly of the meat, potato, bread variety). I still enjoy those comfort foods, but now try to focus on organic ingredients as much as possible. Once I moved to Minneapolis, I grew more and more interested in cooking, dining out, and reading blogs about local foods and restaurants.
By day, I work as a clinical social worker for a local childrens' hospital/clinic. By night, I'm a wife, mom, house manager, and food/restaurant blogger. Exercise is not an option for me. Running, spinning, weight-lifting, and yoga are what keep me healthy and sane.
