When my friends hear me describe myself as an introvert, they’re always a bit surprised. Among my friends and coworkers, I’m outgoing and outspoken. But in a room full of people I don’t know? I’m suddenly as quiet as a mouse. Small talk isn’t my forte, so I really have to work hard to meet and engage with new people.

I felt very much like that when I arrived at my first foodie conference a couple of years ago. It was a little easier for me to reach out to people since it was guaranteed that everyone there would love food as much as I do. While everyone was amazing, and I made a lot of close foodie friends that trip, Katie from Katie’s Cucina was one of the people that I remembered the most. Her warm, bubbly personality shown through each and every day. She was always there with a smile.

I was excited for Katie when she announced that she was pregnant with her first child, and flattered when she asked me to guest post for her. Today’s that day. Today, you can find me over at Katie’s Cucina, where I’m sharing a Salad with Pear Vinaigrette. Head over, check out the salad recipe and Katie’s fabulous blog. And if you’re lucky, there may be a few photos of her new little one to fawn over. 🙂
