Member Spotlight: Sarafina’s Kitchen

The Austin Food Blogger Alliance introduces a new blog series highlighting its current members.  The AFBA wouldn’t be here without the support of its membership!  Let’s get started with Meagan Warncke.

Meagan authors Sarafina’s Kitchen and contributes to the Cedar Park-Leander Statesman as a columnist for “Appetite For Life.”

2013_AFBA_MeaganWTell us about yourself, where are you from, what do you write about?

I’m originally from Beaumont, but have lived in the Austin area for over 20 years.

I write about food and the role it plays in memories of my life.  The connections it makes, the comfort it brings.

How did you start blogging?

I started my blog as a way to share recipes with friends and family. It was also a way to force me to be brave in the kitchen and learn new skills.

What item is always in your fridge?

Cheese. Any and every kind. Laughing Cow, Ricotta, Cheddar, Blue, etc.

I think I was a mouse in another life.


If you could share dinner with anyone, who would it be and what would you eat?

My grandparents. I miss them so much.  I’d love for them to see how they influenced my love of cooking.  I’m sure I’d make a dish that I learned from each of them.

What was a memorable AFBA moment you experienced?

I haven’t been to many AFBA events, but just being a part of the group and seeing members at other events is so much fun.  It’s good to know I’m not the only crazy food blogger out there.
