I’m Erin. I’m the head cook and baker around these parts. I haven’t always been much of a chef or baker, though. While I always assisted my parents in the kitchen while growing up and was assigned Hershey kiss duty for holiday baking, I never really felt that connection with all things culinary until I went to college.
Call me crazy, but I fell in love with cooking when I realized I could make dishes better than the dining hall could. And I fell deeper in love when I realized that cooking and baking are a fantastic way to bring friends together. (Because, let’s be honest, who likes to cook for just themselves? Not this girl.) And then I fell head over heels when I met my now-husband, and we cooked together as a team.
Yes, I’m a sap. It’s true. And I think cooking/baking is kind of my love language.
When I’m not slaving away in the kitchen – ha – you can find me working for national and local media outlets, as well as individuals, documenting news and lives through my lens. And it pretty much goes without saying that I love what I do. Every day.
Some more random information for you:
Things I can’t resist: strawberry-whiskey cocktails, puppy snuggles, half marathons, dark chocolate covered pretzels, AP style (and the inevitable use of lots of parentheses even though those are NOT AP style) and semi-emo piano/guitar music.
Things I could live without: 100+ degree heat, cilantro and broken technology.
