My name is Karen, and it’s true, I’m addicted to soup.
I’d get help, but ya know, I just don’t wanna. I mean, it’s soup. Who wants to be saved from soup?
I’m a four-season vegetable and herb gardener, and seed-to-kitchen cook based in Cincinnati, Ohio. As a home cooking and gardening advocate, my recipes feature fresh, seasonal foods prepared with learnable techniques and reliable results. You’ll find lots of soups, salads, and pasta dishes, many vegetarian or easily made meat-free.
An independent writer with 20 years of professional experience, I began my career in the tech sector, publishing articles on software and office automation, resulting in over 50 bylines in some of the best tech magazines and journals of the day. Over the last few years, I’ve transitioned to the food and gardening world, where I write about yummy food and how it gets from the ground to our tables.
