Stuff I Make My Husband is my recipe blog which primarily focuses on quick weeknight meals, with the occasional indulgence. I have a penchant for crock pot recipes and make-ahead freezer meals. I aim for simple, delicious dishes based on animal protein and lots of veggies.
I'm Erica. I'm a professional software developer by day, amateur boxer by night. I spent most of my life being chubby and out of shape. You can read my transformation story (with pictures) here at Mark's Daily Apple.
My husband fights too; he does MMA in his spare time from being a professor. We live funny dual lives like that. He is also in my corner when I fight, along with my coach.
I love cooking and I love eating. When I lived in New York, I worked at a culinary school in exchange for free classes. I also worked in a restaurant kitchen for a semester. That made me decide that I prefer to cook as a hobby rather than for a living. But I came out of the experience knowing how to make tasty food.

|I miss Spain. There is ham everywhere in Spain, just hanging off of every surface.|
Boxing is of course my main sport, but I also powerlift, swim, run, attend yoga and spin classes, and occasionally do some grappling.
