I’m the recipe developer and food photographer behind So Much Food. I’m a born-and-raised Californian, recently turned Texan (I’m not buying cowboy boots) since I moved to San Antonio with my husband and three dogs. I was a professional chef in San Diego for almost a decade before our move— bringing local, seasonal food to the folks of So Cal.
I was raised in sunny San Diego for all of my life and I grew up on a mixture of comfort food and traditional Spanish fare from my midwestern mama and hispanic papa. My parents wove such a rich love for food in me from a young age that becoming a chef was almost destiny. After a decade of cooking in California, opportunities in Texas for the type of cooking I was accustomed to were limited but I wanted to find a way to continue to share my passion for food with others and thus, So Much Food was born!
I now work on developing approachable, yet exciting recipes that the home cook can tackle while drawing on techniques learned in professional kitchens. From comfort food, to healthy eats, to recipes from other cultures, there’s something here for everyone. Thanks for joining me on this journey, we are going to eat SO MUCH FOOD.
