Hi, I’m Erin. I love to cook & bake. I’m a self-professed foodie. I love to try new restaurants, and try new food every day. I especially love to cook healthy dishes that taste great too! I started this blog as a way to keep up with recipes I like, and it expanded into a way to share my kitchen adventures with the world. Enjoy!
My day job is a television editor. Cooking and baking is my way to relax from a crazy week at work. I do most of my kitchen activities between Friday & Sunday. People often say “you should open a bakery” or “you should be a chef”. It’s flattering; and I reply “thanks but no thanks”. People only see my successes, and believe me, I have plenty of failures. Besides, I truly love what I do. My whole life I knew I wanted to work in television. And now I’m living my dream. All the cooking and baking, well, that’s just icing on the cake!
Oh, and a little more background info. I grew up in a teeny tiny, no stoplight town, on a farm in KY. I now live in the “city” of Nashville, TN. (I say “city” because it just feels like a big small town to me.) I love being able to walk to the grocery, the bars & restaurants, parks, and coffee shops. I treasure and cherish my upbringing, and I wouldn’t change it for the world, but I also love my city life. I’m lucky to have found a man who wants to share the same lifestyle. And I’m lucky he puts up with me. My current goal is to convince him to start a beer blog. Haha…
Also, if you like my photography, check out my attempt at the 365 Project, where I take a photo a day everyday for 365 days! Sometimes I get behind on my posting, but I’m still taking pictures!
