1) Who is Feaux?
Feaux is Bobbi. Or Bobbi is Feaux…I’m not sure which is proper. C’est moi:
I'm a thirty-something new [working] mom who loves food, family, and writing about both.
2) What do you do?
I’m a geologist/environmental scientist. When I lived in Louisiana, I dealt mainly in wetlands, and oil & gas exploration.
Now I deal primarily with leaking petroleum sites, and karst (aka caves).
(The Hubs & I doing some extracurricular caving. Missouri is home to over 6,000 caves, and there are 383 known caves in my county alone.)3) Why do you blog?
This blog originally started in 2008, when I was still living in Louisiana, as a way to chronicle my journeys of trying to learn to cook Cajun food. Then, when I moved back to Missouri, it was a way for me to hold on to that life & culture that I missed so dearly. Now, it’s just a mish-mash of ME. I cook all the time, but not necessarily just Cajun food. I'm a new mom and use this as an outlet to chronicle that new journey. And I enjoy a good cocktail now & then, and I enjoy sharing those as well. :D
4) What do you LOVE?
My husband (we married in 2011):
My Son (who joined our family in 2015):
Our dog (who loves us back, even though we harass him):
Photography: I shoot with Canon, exclusively. SD750 Elph, PowerShot SX130 IS, or Rebel EOS XS, depending on the situation.
(Weddings call for the Elph.)
Star Wars (particularly Yoda):
Science-y stuff: I collect rocks & books, I have water quality testing kits in my garage (for the caves), and an endless supply of nerdy t-shirts:
(Par exemple: 2010’s halloween costume—the Mad Scientist)
Scuba Diving: Now that I’m landlocked, I don’t get to go as often, but I still make at least one trip per year.
Cuz you just don’t get to see these guys above ground.
And of course, FOOD. Cooking it, eating it, talking about it, dreaming about it.
