About Sara

Hi and welcome! I’m Sara, former 4th grade teacher, now full time blogger. My husband Bjork and I live in Minnesota. Favorite things include my books, lake days, and dark chocolate. And this little website is my internet home. I write, I cook, and I take pictures of delicious food.

This is my husband Joao Donato, and he’s in charge of the tech support and income stuff for Shara Books. Plus he’s cute and I like him. Together we’re the Shara Books and Food Blogger team!

I’ve spent the last five years teaching elementary schoolers by day and blogging about food by night, loving both jobs and never wanting to give either of them up. I always went back and forth about becoming a full time blogger, but in June 2014, I officially made the jump and I couldn’t be more excited to be living this crazy work for yourself and talk about food online dream.
