Spache the Spatula

About Spache the Spatula essays about good customer service Welcome to my little slice of the Internet! First of all, thank you so freakin’ much for visiting my blog! I am tickled pink by each and every visitor, but even more so by the comments you leave! dissertation on management IMG_0428 which binary option broker is best start 10 I’m Rachael, a twenty-something foodie living in Seattle. This is the place where I share all of my favorite recipe creations and adaptations. Sometimes, I even throw in a casual restaurant review for meals out that really “wow” me. You’ll find all sorts of food here: sumptuous risottos, outrageously decadent cakes, and, shockingly, lots of veggies and “healthy” recipes. I don’t claim to be an expert, and I’m not a trained chef (I only play one at murder mystery parties!), but I sure do have a passion for good food!

microbiology lab reports I discovered the food blogging community shortly after moving to Seattle (from the sunny Gulf coast of Florida) in the summer of 2008. I was overwhelmed by the amazingly fresh ingredients I had access to out here in the Pacific Northwest, and began looking up recipes online. This, of course, lead to a massive obsession with food blogs. At the end of 2009, I finally decided to start one of my own in order to keep track of all of the recipes that I tried out and created.

how to win in binary options good or bad comment You’re probably wondering what “Spache the Spatula” means (and probably how to even pronounce it). When I was little, my cousins, Sara and Allie, lovingly, called me “Spache”—rhyming with “Rach.” They also, with the same amount of love but also a whole lot of teasing of the likes only family can administer, began calling me “Spache the Spatula.” While as a child, it irritated me to no end, I have since warmly embraced it. The culinary-themed nickname may have been a bit of fortuitous foreshadowing! When I decided to create this blog, I immediately knew that it was the perfect title.

888You might see me mention “Mikey” quite a bit. He is my wonderful boyfriend, taste-tester, and used-to-be photographer. He used to take all the photos for this blog, but at the end of 2013 I stopped being a weenie and learned how to use a DSLR camera. He also knows how to do a lot of the techy stuff on the site. He’s a pretty talented guy, and when he’s not making video games for the big bucks, he does some pretty stellar graphic design work, on the side.

What do I like aside from delicious, delectable, delights? I’m so glad you asked!

I have a freakish obsession with the ocean, and specifically sharks. I love SCUBA diving, and my strangest life goal is to open-water dive with a Great White Shark (no cages, people!).

I have a Bachelor’s of Arts in English from the University of Washington, and I am a voracious reader when I want to be. Nine times out ten, when you put a book in my hands, I won’t stop reading (not to eat, sleep, talk to others…) until I finish it.

puppersMy newest adorable, little time-sink is my Dingo-esque pup, Rook. He’s a prior stray who is a lazy, couch potato inside, but becomes Mr. Barky-Pants the second he steps foot outdoors… we’re working on it ;).
