Bistro OneSixCome on in to the Bistro OneSix. Let me get you a cocktail. Make yourself comfortable!

The number sixteen seems to want to play a big part in my life. My address is full of it. I met my husband on the 16th. We married on, you guessed it, the 16th. So we began to joke that our house was the Bistro OneSix. That I am the chef and he’s front of the house. Our two cats? Well, they raise the cuteness factor and volunteer to taste test fish dishes. We started checking in on Facebook and so did friends to the point that the social media site thought we were an actual business. I ran with it, claiming the page on Facebook and creating this blog.

I’m  a graphic designer by profession with an interest in all things food. I am lucky to be surrounded by people that share this passion and there’s never a shortage of inspiration or partners in collaboration. Some of my happiest memories involve big tables covered with food, plenty of wine, and extra chairs pulled up to accommodate all the friends and family. If I can help facilitate these kinds of evenings, well then I’d say this is a great hobby to have.


When I’m not cooking and writing about it, I love to travel, learn more about photography and wine and I spend a fair amount of time on a road bike as well as my cruiser enjoying the wonderful lifestyle we have in Boise, Idaho.

It is humbling, even overwhelming, when I think of all there is to learn in the culinary arts – I’m honored that you’re interest in joining my voyage. Welcome and cheers!
