Throwback Thursday: Winter in Columbus, Ohio
My inspiration for baking and cooking came to its full fruition when it looked like this outside (see picture above)! I moved to Columbus, Ohio in January for a great job opportunity but little did I know, moving to the Midwest in the heart of winter was not the smartest of ideas. I still remember the snow department at Target where I bought my first snow shovel, bag of sand and 2 windshield scrapers in case one broke (which actually happened). I have never seen such dedication to snow as I did there at Target. Clearly there was a need for it.
I have always enjoyed cooking and baking, but the days when snow covered my car and blanked the city streets is when I started my experimentation in the kitchen. Although I soon realized that such harsh conditions were not for me, I developed a great appreciation for the comfort and warmth that food could bring to oneself. 2 ½ years and dozens of dishes later, I moved to southern California leaving behind great memories and wonderful friends. To those of you that helped me with all the tips on surviving through winter, my doors are always open for you in sunny So. Cal.!
