Three things about me:  (1) I was born and raised in Mississippi and now live in Charlotte, NC; (2) I spent 15 years in Germany and exploring Europe; (3) Cooking is my passion/therapy, and I especially love cooking with local, seasonal produce.

My time in Europe opened my eyes to new ways of preparing food with ingredients I hadn't previously used.   My friends have dubbed my salads "Megasalads" which finally prompted me to start this blog.  What better way to incorporate my favorite things than by sharing my recipes and finds with you!

I hope you enjoy the blog and will share some of your own ideas with me!
