Hi, and welcome to our family foodie blog!
I’m Amy, the cook/author and photographer behind Chew Out Loud.
I’m wife to the smartest guy I know, who also happens to be a willing partner in foodie-crime. Hubby is the tech-master, photography advisor, and very discriminating taste tester behind this blog.
Hubby and I both grew up in L.A. We were both raised in families where food was the source of togetherness and celebration. My folks regularly cooked up dish after dish as their way of showing love. Rather than using recipes, they relied instead on the experience passed down to them. Hubby’s grandfather was the head chef of a prominent restaurant in downtown. At home, his grandfather cooked seven-course meals out of locally fresh ingredients for family dinners. Every. Single. Night. (Crazy, right?)
Needless to say, we are a couple that’s besotted by all things gastronomic.
When I’m not dredged in flour or sampling chocolate off my spatula, I am:
* A dog-lover, book-inhaler, addicted runner, and God’s girl.
* Proud mommy of three very busy, silly, and rambunctious boys. My world is all blue. And loud. And wild.
* Teacher on lengthy sabbatical. My days are currently filled with volunteer work and chasing after said boys.
* Hunter of as many Zagat-worthy eats as possible, for every city we travel to. Our kids beg for McD’s.
Cooking/baking is my hobby-slash-therapy. I don’t have super stand-out talents; I wish I could sing like Celine and sew like Martha. But one thing I can do is create yummy eats 🙂 My kids won’t be receiving handmade scrapbooks (do Photo Books count??) But I hope I’m passing down precious memories made in our kitchen and around the table.
The recipes you’ll find at Chew Out Loud are either inspired with proper credit given, or are homegrown recipes and certified yummy by foodie family and friends. We often provide wine pairing suggestions, as my man is also an avid wine connoisseur.
