Welcome to Diary of a Mad Hausfrau.
An American married to a German national (Dr. B) , life, love and work took me from NYC to Los Angeles to Munich to Cologne to a small village on the German/Dutch border. After 10 years in Germany, the good doctor's United Nations career relocated us back to NYC.
I'm an Emmy nominated television producer and a scuba diving/travel junkie who has visited over 54 countries. I have no formal culinary training but the kitchen is my happy place and enjoy the exchange of ideas and creativity food blogging provides.
I have written recipes for the Duncan Hines website, and am currently the German Food Expert for About.com and a member of The Daily Meal’s Culinary Content Network. My creations have also been featured multiple times on popular sites such as People Magazine, PBS Parents, Buzzfeed, Cupcakes take the Cake, Disney’s Babble.com and ivillage.
One of my favorite things to do is participate in online baking charitable efforts. Among these are: Frosting for the Cause (Cancer), The Red Pump Project, Cook Red to Remember (HIV Awareness) Operation Cookie Takeover (Sending cookies to US soldiers stationed in Afghanistan) and an online bake sale to benefit those affected by the typhoon in the Philippines.
I hope you find something delicious here to make or find inspiration from my colorful, sometimes offbeat, creations.
Thanks for stopping by!
