Welcome to Cognitive Dishonance or as I like to call it the brainchild of myself and a now empty bottle of Grey Goose. I’ve taken the culinary experience and turned it on its ear with unconventional, interesting, sometimes wacky, but always entertaining topics that provoke thought, educate, and inspire a love of all things food. There’s colorful commentary, a guest blogger or two, and of course, recipes (the kind you can steal and pass off as your own).

And now here’s a tad more about me…

Hi, I’m Ann! I’m a writer, idea generator, and a pretty good cook. Okay, really good cook. I’m also a mom, a martial artist, and avid cyclist. Send me a message if you want to chat. I’d love to connect!

The night is dark and full of terriers.


Meet Clio and Mr. Ollivander (Ollie). They accompany me on my escapades.
