My name is Kristen, and I was born and raised in New Orleans (I’ve lived in other places, but I always end up back in New Orleans somehow) . I attended Tulane University and graduated in 2010 with my degree in political science hence the Politics titled portion of my blog. Besides continually following politics, I also have a passion for food. I love to cook, create, and recreate my own version of recipes. So I decided I would merge the two things in this world I genuinely get excited about and create a blog.
Now if you’re thinking this blog is about food politics, it’s not. (even though I find the two worlds of food and politics are increasingly intersecting). My posts will vary from food/recipes to politics. You will probably find as I post that when it comes to food I love Italian, Cajun, and Latin cuisines. On the politics side of this blog, I tend to enjoy writing about international politics and gender/sexuality issues. However, with this blog I’m hoping to expand my interests, and I’ll definitely include posts about subjects outside of the aforementioned realms.
Last, things I love outside of food and politics would be: Female vocalists that fall under the diva category (i.e. Tina Turner), Reading, the New Orleans Saints, and Corgis.
This is Coach, my Corgi. Officially the cutest animal on the planet.
