Thanks for visiting Blue Crab Martini! I’m Christin, a native of the Eastern Shore of Maryland currently living in the Annapolis area. I love everything about the Chesapeake Bay lifestyle. Crabbing, fishing, boating, and getting a little sand in my toes are some of my favorite pastimes.
I’m also an adventure seeker and expert marshmallow roaster, which comes in handy when raising two little boys! When I’m not busy testing recipes in the kitchen and being a super mom (in training), I’m a graduate student at the Johns Hopkins University.
The countdown is on until I receive my MA in Communication in the spring of 2015! I also hold a BS in International Business from the University of Baltimore (2005). Now that I’ve confirmed my status as a certifiable nerd, let’s get to the good stuff… the food!
ABOUT MY FOOD
I’m not a professional chef, nor am I nutrition expert. However, I am a real food enthusiast with a love for home grown ingredients. I believe that eating well means living well.
For me, this means living off of the land as much as possible. I use organic, local, seasonal, and homegrown ingredients as often as possible. Living in the Chesapeake Bay region provides for an abundance of seafood, an ideal climate for gardening, and ample hunting opportunities.
My food is rustic yet refined, easy but elegant, and quite simply- delicious. All of the recipes on this blog are my own and are inspired by my experiences of living on the Chesapeake Bay.
