I was born in Wyoming and have lived in four states since I married the love of my life. We're currently living in Alaska, waiting for the next big adventure to come our way. I loved the two years we spent in Missouri and hope to never repeat the two years we spent in Texas.
I have written and self-published two cookbooks, you can find those here. I'm ready to start working on a new one, but that's gonna take some time. I also write free verse poetry and short essays, both of which can occasionally be found here.
I'm a photographer, not by profession, but by passion and hobby. I have been shooting for over two decades. I feel the best camera is the one you have with you, which now days seems to be the phone in my pocket. If you'd like to see more of my work, you should check out Stacy Petersen Photography.
The artist in me is also a hobbyist who's self-taught, but artist none the less. I create pen and ink drawings and handmade cards. If you're interested you can see my work by visiting Inked Inspirations.
I'm a lover of non-fiction. Yes, I know I'm a bit of a rare bread. I enjoy memoirs, preferably about travel of food and love it when both colid in the same book. I savor reading cookbooks as if they are novels. Books on gardening, building cabins and living off the land also pull me in and encourage the dreamer in me.
The foodie in me loves everything about food. Cooking it. Eating it. Reading about it. Even looking at photos of it. Over the years food has become an accidental passion. I love farmer's markets, ethnic markets, chain grocery stores, and regional food havens. I'm the tourist that visits local grocery stores on vacation. I collect recipes I may never make. I relish in trying new foods and sharing meals with people who enjoy food as much as I do. I'm always thinking about the next good meal.
