Hey there! Thanks for checking out my recipes! I hope you find a recipe or two that you fall in love with. So why do I blog? I share delicious recipes to help YOU become the best home cook possible. And I do it because it’s really fun too! Like the infamous Goldilocks herself, I am a naturally curious person and I’m a picky foodie. Is there such a thing? Well, here I am in the flesh. I really, really love eating amazing food, as long as it doesn’t have cilantro, raw tomatoes, or raw onions in it. Yep. That’s right. I admit it. And I still occasionally pick the crust off my bread. (Did I just share my deepest darkest secrets with the world?)
I have been so inspired by the recent ‘cooking movement’ of the last few years that I want to become like all these chefs I see on TV. From America’s Test Kitchen to the Cake Boss to the Pioneer Woman’s blog, learning how to be a great cook is something I have always wanted to do. I have a firm belief that anyone can achieve anything that they set their heart on, with hard work, practice, and positive thinking. I feel I’ve accomplished many things this way in my life, and now I’ve turned my attention to cooking. So, have fun clicking your way through my recipes! And I love to connect with my readers. So if you happen to re-create one of my dishes at home, don’t be afraid to share a comment about it. I do my best to respond to all questions :0)
As for personal stuff, I hail from the land of enchantment; New Mexico. After graduating high school, I went off to college in Idaho as an Illustration major. Then realizing I didn’t want to make a career out of a hobby, I switched my major to something very similar; Geology :0) And I loved every minute of it. (Okay everything except the ‘all nighters’ I pulled for finals many a time.) I graduated with my bachelors degree in 2005 and worked as a GIS technician for a few years. I am now married and stay home with my three small children. I have many interests~ swing dancing, curling up with a great book, eating chocolate while curling up with a great book, exploring mountains, totally ‘nerding out’ watching sci-fi and fantasy films, dreaming of traveling the world, painting, and tapping my toe to bluegrass music.
My faith is also an essential part of who I am. I am Mormon and served as a full-time missionary in the Toronto Canada area from 2000 to 2002, and loved being able to serve the people there. I am so thankful for the life I’ve had and all that I’ve been able to learn and experience. I believe in living each day to it’s fullest and hope I can be a blessing in your life with the recipes I share! If you’re curious, check out Mormon.org.
