Happelsauce is written by me, Annie Happel, a world wanderer and seeker of all things delicious. I grew up in Seattle, but have lived in a smattering of cities across the United States. In February 2009, I created a blog called Happeltizer as a means of keeping my family and friends informed of my experiences while working on organic farms in France and Spain. I found great joy in both farming and writing. Farming brought me closer to the earth – its seasonal bounty inextricably linked with freshness and flavor that gets lost in the season-less aisles of our grocery stores. Writing helped me to process my thoughts, reflect and shed light on my journey in an entirely different way.
I returned to the United States in June 2009 with a greater appreciation for the food I eat everyday and an insatiable urge to learn more and cook. In an effort to share my culinary delights and disasters, I present Happelsauce – the updated, more delicious version of Happeltizer. The content from Happeltizer will remain, but Happelsauce is my new outlet and my anchor while I learn about the origins of edibles and attempt to whip up lots of goodness in the kitchen.
