A Texas native and former omnivore, Traci is the author and photographer behind Vanilla And Bean, a vegetarian food blog where you'll find savory and sweet recipes and photography to inspire. Although flavors of TexMex influence her cooking, she now resides just North of Seattle WA where farms and farmers markets abound. This is where she finds her inspiration. After a career in education, Traci set off to pastry school to learn in the French style and hone her baking skills. While working at an organic, artisan bakery Traci started Vanilla And Bean to share her love of good food.
