This Blogpress Foodie Lady

This Blogpress Foodie Lady doesn’t want to bore you with a typical bio.

I know you are probably only viewing this because you are a nosy person, wondering what this crazy lady has in store for your viewing pleasure.

No that is not meant to be dirty.

I have been in the kitchen since I was a small child. I was probably the only child in my family who took food to a whole other level. Don’t get me wrong my whole family loves to cook. A cousin of mine is a nutritionist, my parents avidly cook voluntarily for veterans organizations as well as at home.

I had the opportunity to go to culinary school after returning from a deployment in Iraq and some other time spent in Germany with the US Army. I used the GI Bill to my full advantage. I’d always wanted to go just to have that experience. I already knew that I did not want to work in a High-End kitchen per se, but the experience would be profitable to me in more ways than one.

I got pregnant and married during my time at culinary school. (Yes in that order) I did graduate although with a family to boot. My husband is active Army and With deployments, deaths of family members, major moves overseas, I haven’t had the opportunity to actually work in the culinary profession.

Right now I am a recipe without a book to be written in.


Currently residing in Virginia with a big move across the United States and up to Alaska in the Summer. I had my second child during my few year hiatus from my blog. I also pursued my Bachelor’s degree in Culinary Management from home. We welcomed another family member our Boykin Spaniel, Brownie all in the same year of 2015. I have gone back to work part-time for now. I work in a produce department which I enjoy. I am on the look-out for career opportunities in Fairbanks, hoping to snag a job in a kitchen so I can further practice and hone in on my skills as a chef.


Thank you for browsing the site. I hope you enjoy what I have to share. If you have any comments, questions, suggestions, please feel free to send me a message.
