Hi, I am Mary! I write Chattavore, a Chattanooga, Tennessee food blog. On Chattavore you will find lots of Chattanooga-area restaurant reviews, but you will also find lots of Southern food, comfort food, recipes for baking, and plenty of healthy and vegetarian recipes as well. You will also read about my love for Lodge cast iron (I live 50 miles from the Lodge factory-how amazing is that?), my undying devotion to brown butter and bacon, and my serious addiction to cookbooks. I also occasionally tell stories about my life as a behavior analyst, my husband Phil, my cat Stella, and my amazing family that shaped my love for food.
