Planning a culinary vacation to Europe?
Looking for easy and delicious globally-inspired dessert recipes?
You’re in the right place! Hi, I’m Cate, a former “expat” with a life-long global heart and a huge sweet tooth.
I’m smiling because I’d just had a really good Dutch apple pastry.
And who doesn’t love oversized Dutch clogs? 🙂
I also love to travel and do so as often as I can. I’ve spent the most time in Europe – I lived in Germany for some of my teens and 20s (and then taught German in the US for several years). My work in international education has taken me to South America, Central America, the Caribbean, Australia, and around North America. My husband is my favorite travel partner but I’m also perfectly happy to grab my backpack and hit the road solo a couple times a year.
When I travel, I love exploring the local culture through food, especially a country’s sweet treats. When I’m not traveling, I feed my global heart by recreating scrumptious international desserts in my own little kitchen in North Carolina.
