I always thought cooking was just a hobby of mine until I got CLEAR Internet at home…then it took on a whole new life. I was cooking one day when I thought to take a picture of what I was doing and post it online – there’s something interesting about food photography to me! Anyway, I did that and one thing led to another and it turned into a blog. I started writing about food and techniques and before I knew it I had about 1000 followers. That 1000 turned into 20,000 and then I got offered a book deal. All of this came from me doing what I love to do in my home kitchen and I can’t believe it, my book goes out to stores next week! My husband says he’s really proud of me and I know my mom is all about the fact that I’m giving away some of her recipes. I think my fans like me not because of the recipes I give out but because of the way I give out tips and tricks.
