Hello and welcome to The Travel Palate! I’m Nikole – the writer, photographer, and recipe tester behind The Travel Palate.
I’m a wife, mom of three, and teacher from Texas. The two oldest kids are in college and the youngest is in high school. When all three kids lived at home, life was extremely busy and one of my biggest struggles was avoiding the fast food lane and finding time to cook!
If this sounds all too familiar, then you’ve come to the right place.
I started The Travel Palate blog as a way to develop and document those quick and easy recipes that helped me serve up a home cooked meal on those busy weeknights.
What you’ll find on The Travel Palate
The Travel Palate is dedicated to easy-to-make recipes that don’t sacrifice flavor for convenience. Here you’ll find globally inspired recipes that are made with supermarket ingredients. Many dishes can be made in about 30 minutes or less, some a little longer. Since no food blog would be complete without some sweets, you’ll also find a nice selection of desserts that are perfect for family celebrations.
A little bit More about me and The Travel Palate
I’d rather be…
Traveling! I absolutely love to travel—and it’s addicting! The more places I visit, the more I want to see and explore. Be sure to check out the travel section of the blog for travel tips and recommendations.
I love learning about…
Photography! One of my favorite things about blogging has been learning food (and travel) photography. I really enjoy learning about capturing light, food styling and composition, and visual story telling.
What I teach…
I’m a Texas certified teacher working in a Title I elementary school. I focus on our ESL students in grades K-4.
Past jobs and hobbies…
I’m very curious and love learning new things. I often get this thought, “I wonder what it would be like to _______?” Here are few things I’ve tried: Saturn Car Sales Person, Sign Language Interpreter, Baker and Cake Decorator (I actually made a wedding cake!) Jewelry Designer, Teachers Pay Teachers seller, and Writer – I wrote a 50,000 word romance novel called Trinity Texas Takeover and no it didn’t get published!
