Hi there! My name is Julie and I’m the author behind Table for Two. Thanks for stopping by! Pull up a seat to the table and stay as long as you want :) At Table for Two, you’ll find my collection of recipes that I hope will inspire you to get in the kitchen and make a hearty and delicious meal, with a side of dessert.
This is my husband, Jason (below). You’ll see him mentioned on the blog quite frequently. I like to call him my master taste-tester :) each & every single dish I’ve made on here has been taste-tested & approved by us. If it’s not something we would eat, you can guarantee I will not share it.
I have a passion for food. When I was younger, instead of watching cartoons, my mom had on Julia Child or Yan Can Cook on PBS for me to watch. I truly believe that is what sparked my interest in cooking, not to mention, everyone always remembers me as the “girl who always has Food Network on tv.”
I’ve always been in the kitchen with my mom as a kid and I believe that food brings people together and helps create long-lasting memories. There’s a reason why we all gather in the kitchen, go out to eat together, cook together — food is the common denominator! By no means do I have a background in culinary arts or have training for it, but I have always dreamed of going to culinary school someday. It’s all trial and error for me in the kitchen and I love trying out new recipes I’ve found or cooking one up on a whim.
My cooking philosophy is simple, healthy, quick, and delicious. I make all our meals with that in mind. I work a full time job aside from blogging and when I come home from work, I don’t want to fuss with dinner, therefore, most of my meals are pretty effortless. You’ll see that throughout the blog – a lot of my dishes come together with ease. No crazy ingredients that you’ll have to run to the store for, no long drawn out processes. Just quick and easy. If a dish is fancy schmancy & does have a long prep time, I typically prep the night before or I make those dishes on the weekends when I have more time.
I have a huge sweet tooth and cookies are my weakness. I definitely love to bake and try to be creative with the baking part! I believe that my blog has a good 1:1 ratio of savory to sweet. I like to keep it diverse and not focus on just one category.
Next to food, my second passion in life is traveling. Jason and I love to travel together and we love to get immersed in each unique place’s culture and food scene. We believe that in order to fully understand the culture of some place, you have to eat your way through it and find out the stories behind it. You can check out our travels in the travel section of the blog.
