I started this blog six months ago to explore and document my love for cooking, hosting, and gardening. Through the process of sharing the food that I love and the things I’ve learned, I discovered people who love food as well. I am amazed how a home cooked meal or warm environment draw us close together. I’ve shared many a meal with my community in Southern California and I hope through this blog to grow that community as we share the things we love.
The name One Domestic Goddess came about through a conversation with some good friends of mine who have been married for nearly 30 years. I had just returned from a brunch at my friend’s art studio and was describing the egg strata that I had shared. My friends were amazed by my creativity though I think they were just flattering me. The husband, possibly not knowing how to compliment me, called me a domestic goddess. The name stuck and I knew that I had to start a blog.
My profession is an engineer, though I like to say that I’m a building designer, like the master craftsman of old. I’m discovering what I truly love, or I guess I’m trying to tap into the inner me. I’m learning that no career is streamlined and there is always a reason and use for everything that we’ve experienced.
