Hi everyone–I’m Kelsey, welcome!!
I was born and raised in Northern California but you can currently find me in southwest Virginia.
I began this blog as a way to chronicle my food adventures during my last year of living in one of California’s richest agricultural areas–San Luis Obispo, or SLO, where I had also attended college at Cal Poly. The California central coast has an extensive wine country, a host of local breweries, and farmer’s markets on every day of the week, so it was really the ideal location to learn to appreciate, and to learn how to cook, good food. When I moved to the New River Valley in Virginia, I was thrilled to find a similar local food culture to explore and to inspire my own recipe creation and writing.
I love creating simple, healthy recipes that really highlight the featured ingredients, and that cooks of all levels can enjoy making. Since moving to the New River Valley, I have also expanded my blog to include more lifestyle features, such as fashion, another one of my other passions.
When I’m not in the kitchen or writing, I can be found hanging out with my two cats, Padfoot and Pippin, exploring new areas and restaurants with my husband, singing and performing, and working at my day job as a full time graduate student earning my master’s degree in communication at Virginia Tech.
Thanks for joining me!
