About Me

Hi. I'm Rachel. Welcome to my blog, Diet Starts Monday!

I'll be posting on various and sundry topics, mostly food related. It's a hobby of mine to collect recipes to try - I'll share the wins and epic fails as I trudge along. Recipes will be posted or at least linked, unless they come directly from a book or other published media (I'm not trying to have Bon Appetit send me a cease and desist order anytime soon). Plus, there's this thing called Google, it's kinda awesome, so if you want to find a recipe, have at it.

On a personal note, I am a California native transplanted against my will to Arizona. I live with my wonderful husband and deal with his Air Force deployments, work full time for the University of Arizona while wasting my law degree, and try to whip up gourmet meals in my tiny apartment kitchen. I have champagne tastes on a beer budget, and my hobbies include naps, eating, and judging.

As for the title of this blog, Diet Starts Monday!, it has been a rallying cry of sorts for basically my entire chubby life. I spend a fair amount of time justifying having eaten an entire wedge of Trader Joe's double cream Gouda with a freshly baked French baguette for dinner. Or a combo meal #1 from Chick-fil-A. Such is life - don't worry, the Diet Starts Monday!
