About Wendy

Life's too short to eat bad food...
I’m Wendy...and The Weekend Gourmet is devoted to all things food, both in my kitchen and on the road! I started The Weekend Gourmet in August 2010 simply as a fun creative outlet...and as an easy way for friends and family to access my favorite recipes. Then? Something unexpected and absolutely wonderful happened: this website steadily grew and evolved into something much bigger, thanks in part to a loyal group of readers. In the process, I’ve made tons of friends in the culinary writing world...and The Weekend Gourmet has grown beyond my wildest imagination! We now feature not only recipes, but product spotlights, regional restaurant features and culinary travelogues. I’ve been fortunate to partner with some wonderful sponsor companies, and I’ve even been on television here in San Antonio a few times to cook in front of a live studio audience. None of that would have happened without this website and its wonderful readers. For that, I am eternally grateful...and I promise to keep the Big Flavor Adventures coming!
I’m a native Texan...I love to travel, but Texas will always be home! I grew up in the Houston area, went to college at University of North Texas in Denton (north of Dallas), and currently live in San Antonio. We're HUGE Houston sports fans...especially the Texans and Rockets. My foodie partner in crime is my sweet husband, Michael. He’s The Weekend Gourmet's official Dining Out and Travel Photographer, as well as my Chief Taste Tester. Lucy, our cranky and spoiled orange cat, is the true boss of Casa Garcia and keeps us both in line! Our latest addition is Maggie aka Maggie Pie...or just Pie for short. We found her as a wee stray last Fall and made her part of the family, much to Lucy's chagrin! My passions are cooking, good wine (especially champagne...), discovering great restaurants, and culinary travel -- all of which I share with my readers via words and pictures. When I’m not in the kitchen or at the computer, my favorite things include: traveling, listening to music, watching movies and reading. If I can combine any of these activities with my love of cooking and food? Then I’m a very happy woman!
I absolutely love receiving feedback from my amazing readers!! Feel free to e-mail me at: wendywekendgourmet@gmail.com. You can also follow via Twitter @TheWeekendGourm, join my Facebook fan page, or follow me on Instagram (WEEKENDGOURMET). Share your thoughts regarding what you like about the The Weekend Gourmet; any foods, restaurants or cities you’d like to see me write about...or even just life in general. I truly want my readers to feel like they’re hanging out with me in the kitchen or on the road with us when they read my posts. I also want them to realize that I'm not a trained chef -- if I can cook something, they can too! Anyone who’s met me in person can attest that who I am on the blog is exactly who I am in real life. I love to laugh, and I write pretty much exactly like I talk...but my Texas accent isn’t nearly as strong as you might imagine, considering I’ve lived in Texas all my life. Bottom line: I really love to have a good time, and I’m very passionate about food and cooking!!
