I am an Australian living and working in Phoenix, Arizona with my American boyfriend.

This is a blog about the search for good, unpretentious, scrumptious food. Whether it is a little hole in the wall in Mexico or a fine dining establishment in Melbourne, seeking out the best bread in Arizona or trying to recreate a recipe from a wonderful vacation meal. At home, out on the town and travelling we are always looking for new and delicious food to make and to eat.

We welcome any and all recommendations and comments. Email us at lifeisshort.eathard@gmail.com
