About Me


Welcome to Maggiano Takes Austin!  I'm a 25 year old living in Austin, Texas for the past 10 years, residing in South Austin with my newly fiance, Scott Owens, whom I've been completely head over heels for 7 amazing years, and our 3 yr old fur-baby, Huxley.


I am currently working in the Medical Software Industry/IT field doing Marketing and Sales, and also have been pursuing a degree at the Austin Community College. I am a child of God and believe all things are possible through Him. Scott & I enjoy live music, playing with our little furboy Huxley, and going on trips to getaway! Among all these things, cooking is one of my favorite therapeutic ways to enjoy myself - and I post all my favorite recipes! I hope you enjoy following us on our journey of love, laughter, struggles, great food, puppy fun, & all that jazz.


Here is my story of My Daddy who passed away October 31, 2010 to Esophageal Cancer after being diagnosed for only 6 weeks, and my last 6 days with him.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope this blog will introduce me to so many new friends as it already has!

I am so sorry to hear about your Father. I can't imagine.

I visited Austin for the first time last year and absolutely loved it! Believe that you can do all things through Christ, as well. Im glad you found the blog life group and can't wait to get to know more about you.

Congrats on your engagement! I love being in the kitchen as well. I'm more of a baker than a cook, but am slowly starting to cook as well. I look forward to seeing your recipes; maybe they'll help me with my cooking. ;)
