Have you ever had just one moment in your life completely change the course of your path?
Inspirational food and travel adventures of a true Texan girl living in the heart of the Arizona.
Finding inspiration is a different journey for everyone. For me, food is where it all starts. From local eats to the history of cultural delights – there is so much food can teach us about community, health, and happiness. Gaining this kind of global perspective and passion for connection never seemed possible from the discomfort of a cubicle.
That’s why I left my job. Inspired by my mother’s experiences as a restaurant owner in Texas, I attended the Arizona Culinary Institute where I felt like I belonged.
After honing my skills in the culinary world, my path changed once again when I found myself caring for my mother during her fight with a terminal illness.
After she passed, writing and healthy living became two of the most important parts of my life, especially while dealing with my own health issues. In need of some kind of release and a way to continue communicating with my mother, TEXAZTASTE was born, keeping alive our shared love for food and travel.
Food brings us together.
Food connects us to different aspects of our lives and memories we hold so dearly.
You should never punish yourself for indulging in sweet and salty treats. There is nothing more exciting than sharing those experiences with others. What doesn’t get shared as often: the need for a balance of health and wellness, and the history of cultural dishes.
As a language enthusiast with a love for travel, TEXAZTASTE came to be a therapeutic release of sharing knowledge, reminiscing about my wonderful mother, and sharing my love for culinary goodness.
So, why in the world did a proud Texan gal decide to stay in Phoenix, Arizona? A passion for adventure, connection, and love. Plus, a cute Arizona boy happened to steal my heart.
Are you ready to let TEXAZTASTE inspire your next adventure?
