I am a
newlywed old married lady, physician assistant, baker, cook, skiier, scrapbooker, and wanna-be crafter. I live in Pennsylvania with my super sweet husband, who acts as my #1 taste tester. I love to cook and entertain, and am always looking for an excuse to bring out my inner Martha Stewart. (You know, without spending any time in jail.)
I work in labor and delivery, and get to experience the miracle of bringing babies into the world every single day. Nothing warms my heart more than getting to witness the first time a mother sees her child. It is truly the best job in the world!
When I’m not working crazy hours at the hospital, I’m in the kitchen experimenting with new recipes. Eating wholesome, mostly organic, nutritious food is important to my husband and I, so I am always looking for recipes to replace any processed food that we typically buy. Growing up, my mom did pretty well in the kitchen, but it was really my Italian grandparents who inspired me and taught me how to cook from scratch. My grandpa used to scoff at my mom when she would make a cake from a boxed mix, and now I know why – homemade is so much better!
About Stick a Fork in It:
I started this blog back in August of 2010, after finding myself with loads of free time after graduating from grad school, and waiting for my job to start. Originally I started the blog to use as a personal recipe directory for myself – just someplace to keep track of my favorite recipes. Never in a million years did I think other people would actually want to read it! So, thank you, readers, for keeping me going!
