About Me

Hello! My name is Cait. I’m a recent college graduate and a newbie to the blogging world, but I am no stranger to the food or writing world. Both are great loves of mine. I cook at least 3-4 times a week- with occasional late night insomnia-induced baking sessions thrown in there about once (ok…sometimes twice) a week- utilizing a mixture of personal favorite recipes and those I find on the web.

Fun Facts 

  • I recently graduated with an B.A. in English from the University of Texas (Hook ‘Em! \m/)
  • I am an out and proud nerd who loves and knows entirely too much movie trivia.
  • My lifetime goal is to be a Director.
  • My favorite dessert is either my Maw Maw’s Chocolate Pie or baklava.
  • Margaritas are my favorite alcoholic drink…
  • …but if we’re going beer, I prefer dark beer- stouts and coffee porters are my favorites!
  • Liz Lemon is my spirit animal.
  • Michael Keaton was the best Batman (“YOU WANNA GET NUTS?!”). Come on.
  • The Neverending Story is my favorite movie. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is a very close second.


I generally try to be a positive person, and do my best to help spread positivity.

It is my hope that The Manifest Recipe is a place where people come to relax, be entertained, and learn something about food.  I will always post recipes that I’m making, or aspire to make, for those looking for some cooking inspiration.
