Hello and welcome to The Travel Palate! I’m Nikole – the writer, photographer, and recipe tester behind The Travel Palate.
I’m a wife and mom of three from Fort Worth, 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 even on those busy weeknights.

A little bit More about me and The Travel Palate
My love for food and culture started when I was very young. Being half Japanese and raised in El Paso, Texas, I learned to love food from Asia, as well as the regional cuisine that is rooted in Mexican, Spanish, and Native American cooking.
I’m also influenced by my dad’s Midwestern love of meat and potatoes and my current location in central Texas. And now that my boys live in Georgia and South Carolina, I am learning and loving southern cooking!
I believe cooking for yourself and others is an act of love. Homemade food feeds the body and the soul.
When I’m not blogging about food and travel, I’m working as a teacher in a Title I elementary school. I focus on our ESL students in grades K-4.
One of my favorite things about blogging has been learning food (and travel) photography. We eat what we kill here on the blog. All the food you see is shot in my make shift photo studio that’s set up in my dinning room, then served to my family.
If you have any questions about food photography, I’d love to hear from you!
Thank you for stopping!
