I grew up in the kitchen...not necessarily cooking, but foraging in the pantry and fridge for fun things to eat! I've always been fascinated by food--talking about it, connecting with people through it, and reading up on it (I can read restaurant menus and cookbooks for days). Fast forward to today, and I'm now an online editor for Food.com and the Cooking Channel. I love being part of the discussion--and the network--of food enthusiasts and home cooks. I continually take inspiration from the online world into my own space, as I seek big-impact recipes that'll work with my small space, budget and amount of time.
