Welcome to my little blog!

I live in Austin, Texas, with my gorgeous husband and two cats. I like to eat and cook, but I like eating more than I like cooking. I like to take photos of everything, but especially of things I eat. I like starting projects, and my interests change all the time.

Check out the menu for links to the Recipe Index and Restaurant Index, as well as to information on my books and other things I’ve written.

I shoot most of my photos with a Canon Rebel T1i, a vintage Yashica FRII (usually with Kodak 400 film, or whatever I can easily get my hands on), or my iPhone. I also occasionally use a Harinezumi, a Fuji Instax, a Polaroid, or a Holga.

You can contact me at comments (at) poco-cocoa (dot) com.

Happy reading!

    I am with a group that meets at UT http://www.utquest.org. I am on the lecture committee and we are hoping you would be available in April on a Tuesday afternoon to give an hour to an hour and a half talk on The Food Lovers’ Guide to Austin, and all that subject entails.
    Please contact me email jehowerton@aol.com or cell 297-3681. Thank you for your consideration.

    Crystal, I saw the article in today’s Statesman about you and your second book. I am so, so happy and excited for you! Congrats to you, and I can’t wait to pick up a copy. Food is my passion, and you are my hero!
