Our blog title, "Sweet Tea and Tacos" was suggested by our daughter, and stemmed from our different food backgrounds. Jen was born and raised in Mississippi and Dave was born in and lived his formative years in southern California. These diverse food histories have led to a lot of laughs, fun and also some stress; but always memorable times in the kitchen and around the table.
In launching this site, we hope to share with you why and how the foods we love impact our lives and help shape who we are. We want to hear from you and your stories of the food your grew up with and how it impacts your life. We want to build community.
Both Dave and Jen are artists and enjoy cooking and all things food related. In fact, they met soon after college while both working at a national cookware retailer. They also have both worked in restaurant kitchens.
Dave and Jen live in the deep south, are parents of two, a son and daughter; and are support staff for two Scottish Terriers.
