Welcome! My name is Sigrid Ruge. I believe that traveling, loving, and cooking can change your life.  I also believe that you can achieve travel and love through cooking.  We can’t all literally travel the world, but we can always explore our world’s cuisine through our kitchen.  That is what I love to do.  Join me as I share my favorite recipes from around the world.  And as for love, that too can be found in the kitchen. I married my high school “sweetheart” and he may not admit it, but I’ve always felt the moment he knew I was a keeper was after I jazzed it up with some Zatarain’s Dirty Rice (don’t judge).
