One of the many things I miss about Oregon? Salmon Shmear from Einstein's Bagels. Actually, that's probably not just an Oregon thing... at any rate, I can't get it here in Kentucky. What's a girl to do?

An Oregon Girl Taking a Bite Out of Kentucky
Introduction
I'm a 30-something food-lover, devoted to my family and fur babies. I love to be in the kitchen, I love everything about trying new flavors and foods. I graduated from college in 2005, and went straight to work for a large corporation. After 6 years of climbing the ladder, I realized that wasn't what I wanted my life to be. So here I am! In Kentucky, in the kitchen, and loving life.
