Hello and welcome to Home Cooking!
Right out of high school I had absolutely no clue what I wanted to do with my life. I attended community college trying to find direction and a purpose in life. Through many classes and branching out in ways I never thought possible, I stumbled into the culinary world of food, pastries and delicious foods.
From there I found myself going to culinary school with high hopes of joining the food industry and making my mark on the world. Due to many outside circumstances, this dream was never realized in the way that I had thought. I continued to move forward and bounce around trying to find my place in this world with a continuing theme of food still running through it.
About a year and a half ago my life led me away from the culinary rich buffet that is the San Francisco Bay Area to the middle of nowhere Arizona. While I will never regret my decision to make the move, I found myself not only in the literal desert that is Arizona, but also in a vast food desert as well.
Instead of going out to eat my favorite foods I found myself dusting off old cook books full of recipes and relearning cooking skills I had used maybe once back in school.
Now that I am currently 6 months pregnant, I find myself at home, unemployed, and able to turn to you to help others through my passion for food.
Realizing what a challenge it was to continue to express my love for food in my new home, I realized many others might be feeling the same way.
Maybe you grew up in a middle-of-nowhere town but want to expand what you know about food.
Perhaps your story is similar to mine and don’t know where to start or go from where you have found yourself and need direction.
Or maybe you have a mild interest in food and want to learn more but the whole world of cooking seems intimidating and overwhelming when glimpsed as a whole.
Whatever your reason, welcome!
Very simply put, I wish to help anyone in their food endeavors to make food that is not only beautiful to eat, but tastes amazing.
Food is such an amazing thing in life. It can convey feelings that can’t be spoken and express them to others. Food can tell a story on a plate or through a menu that will take you to places that you never thought possible.
My goal is to help you achieve what you want from food. Whether its to tell the one you love how much they mean by making their favorite meal, extending a hand of sympathy to a grieving friend, or just providing a healthy and delicious meal for your family, I look forward to starting this journey with you and all of us learning from life and each other.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
