A child of chicken-fried steak and white gravy, I've come to embrace -- as a fairly typical Austinite -- limited meat consumption, whole grains whenever possible and an appreciation for locally sourced produce, goods, and services.
In the spirit of America's Test Kitchen, I like to research a bunch of recipes for a given dish before coming up with my own version. Unlike ATK, my focus is maximizing whole grains and minimizing fats... brown rice and non-fat yogurt are my friends.
