I’m a middle aged (am I really? Oh god, yes I am) woman living in Minneapolis, MN with my husband, three dogs, two cats and a lot of animal hair (hence the name of the site). I have taken some cooking classes, but have no formal training (which will be evident the more you read here). But I love to cook. Our kitchen is not ideal space- and style-wise, so we eat out more than we should.

We’re in the process of renovating it a little bit at a time.

Also a note about the “photography”. I am not a photographer. Never taken a class beyond about 4th grade. all photos were/are taken by cell phone camera or my trusty Sony Cybershot (point and click).
