I am a lover of all things beautiful, and all things fresh….. ideas, dreams, flowers, food, design, fashion and people.   Most who know me well know that I have thought many times about throwing in my day job and opening a cuban sandwich shop, a fish taco truck,  a paella + tango joint, a juice bar  and on and on depending on the season and the favorite flavor that lingers on my tongue  at any moment.    Luckily,  I still maintain  my dual jobs  and  cook and create for friends and family for  fun mostly all of the time.



My day job happens to be a very stressful one as a social worker (no longer in an emergency room) but in a pediatric hospital nevertheless; so the need to un-do the day is an essential ingredient in my continued happiness and ability to thrive.   I can often be found running the edges of Lake Washington in Seattle within seconds of landing at my doorstep following a day at the hospital, but later, can  always be found in my lovely little kitchen in Madison Park that I refer to as Casa Alta.

  1. Tracey –
    Congratulations on your new website with pics and posts of your culinary treks. It is as enjoyable to see and read as it is to taste I’m sure. It’s going to be a summer like no other with your garden – even in Junuary!

  2. Tracey….love, love, love, love, LOVE that you did this…for yourself, and for folks like myself that will muse over your website and wonderful culinary creations. (ps…loved the cobbler) Here’s to living the BEAUTIFUL life!

  3. Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an really long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear.
    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyhow, just wanted to say great blog!
