Welcome to Savory Notes! I’m Cathy. I’m
26 27 28, and I’m loud.
I was born and raised in Syracuse NY, and for 22 years, it was home. Then my older sister invited me to Southern California. I ended up falling in love with a boy (funny how that happens,) and five years later, I’m still here (and still with the boy).
Savory Notes is a culinary diary of things I love, like, and dislike, with articles, recipes, and photos along the way. You’ll always get my honest opinion, even when you don’t want it.
This is my fiancé, Mike. He’s a human garbage disposal; he’ll eat anything, (except watermelon). He’s the complete opposite of me: patient, calm, and logical. And I hope all of our babies have his adorable, curly hair.
I’ve moved 6 times in the past 6 years, and every kitchen we’ve ever had, has been tiny. Teeny tiny. If-more-than-one-person-is-in-there-at-a-time-someone’s-butt-is-getting-touched, tiny. But, I kinda feel like it’s my thing now. I’d probably drown in a big kitchen.
We have two awesome cats:
Gambit Zero Protoman Jr III. We adopted him from a shelter (we went to FIVE until we found him). He enjoys lying all over clean clothes, belly rubs, and hiding… cuz he’s a big scaredy cat.
Harvey Nimble Oates. He adopted us. (He would follow us to our car EVERY night. One night he snuck into our garage. We kept him after that.) His hobbies include getting into EVERYTHING, aggressive nuzzles, and having adorable thumbs.
For any, and all other questions, comments, concerns, or tomfoolery, go ahead and shoot me a message on the Contact page.
