Where do you live?

I live in Raleigh, North Carolina. I’m a North Carolina native having spent my first 18 years in Charlotte and then moved to Raleigh for college [Go Pack!]. I loved it so much, that I made it my permanent home...for now!

What was your inspiration for starting your blog?

My most prized possession is a handwritten cookbook gifted to me when I was 11 from my beloved Grandma Bette. I cherish all the family recipes and special notes she took the time to beautifully dictate and organize. Family history and sentimental heirlooms are absolutely priceless to me and I hope one day this blog will be a collection of my life experiences and knowledge that I can then pass along like my grandmother did!

How tall are you?

I’m 5’10” and crazy enough, I’m the runt of my family ☺

What is your favorite place you’ve traveled to?

I have so many countries and cities on my list to see still but there is just something so incredibly special and unique about Italy. The smaller the city, the more I typically fall in love with it! Wine, cheese, pasta, wine, wine, oh and wine…what’s not to love?!

How old are you?

I’m 27 years young ☺ I’m in my newlywed year with my husband, Ryan and we are having so much fun enjoying life and planning for the future!

How old are your dogs?

I have two fur babies. Both are goofy, loveable and veryyy vocal German Shepherds. Rocky is 7 years old [I think, he’s a rescue] and Sasha is just over a year old. Sasha has enough sass and spunk to equal that of 5 puppies and she has recently perfected the art of snuggling, ahh be still, my heart! ☺ Rocky is a huge mama’s boy and very special. He has very specific medical needs from a condition called Megaesophagus.  His entire esophagus is paralyzed and he has to eat everything vertically to help his body get it down to his stomach. And guys…he eats in a HIGHCHAIR lol yes, like a baby. Yes, I’m a crazy dog lady but for good reasons lol

Where’s your favorite place to shop?

That’s easy…Amazon!!! And I don’t discriminate either, Amazon Prime, Amazon Now, Amazon Pantry and my current new obsession, Amazon Wardrobe!

What do you do for a living?

I work for a food brokerage firm and represent over 60 manufacturing companies. What the heck is that, right? Lol So, in the food industry you have food manufacturers like Blue Bunny ice cream and Perdue chicken. THEN you have the food distributors that help send transport the food wherever it needs to go and lastly, you have any establishment that serves food to customers directly (restaurants, sports arenas and even colleges). So where do I fit in? I’m in between the food manufacturers and the distributor. I learn about all the new products that the manufacturer comes out with and then working alongside the distributor, we go into the restaurants together and I’ll cook up the product for the chefs and owners to help them find exactly what they are looking for! So basically, I get to talk about food all day ☺
