My real life kitchen is small and messy, but what comes out of it is mighty tasty! You could say that my kitchen is my personal haven. It’s the place where I really get my zen on.
Writing and cooking (and eating) are some of the things I love the most. Free Your Fork is where I get to enjoy all of those things in one place. It’s a creative little corner of the internet where I get to share all my favorite dishes directly with you.
FYF is both taste-driven and health-minded. Flavor always comes first. Then comes trying to use as many good-for-you ingredients as possible without compromising the original, all-important YUM factor. You’ll find recipes here ranging from healthy to healthy(ish) to unapologetically indulgent.
I whole-heartedly believe that your own table at home can be one of the BEST places you can go to eat. Hopefully these recipes inspire you to cook even more in your own kitchen. Feel free to look around and take a recipe (or two!) home for a tasty test drive. And if you do, please tell me all about it.
No really, I mean it! Leave a comment on your favorite recipe pages or even send me a little email note. There are so many ways for us to stay connected, so let’s keep in touch!
You can follow Free Your Fork on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. If you make something using one of my recipes, be sure to tag me in your post so I can see your awesome at-home creations! The little icons to your right will take you directly to each FYF social media page.
Better yet, subscribe to my newsletter so you can get recipes emailed straight to your inbox. It’s the easiest and best way to make sure you never miss out on a new post.
A LITTLE ABOUT ME
I live in Northern California but like to call Yosemite or really any of the other National Parks “home” whenever possible. Tent + Campfire Cooking + Starry Nights. Yes, PLEASE. Who wants to make an army of s’mores with me fireside?
Nature is my happy place. I love being outdoors, hiking, camping, and sometimes fishing. My favorite part about fishing is sitting in the boat chaperoning the snacks and making sure everyone is adhering to a strict sunscreen schedule. Okay…okay. Got me. So reallyyyy what I like is soaking up some sunshine, picnicking out on the water, and thumbing through a book near my dad and boyfriend while they fish. Details.
Coffee is a non-negotiable in my day. 2 strong cups, please.
Pizza is my kryptonite. I wouldn’t dream of turning down a cheesy chicken pesto pizza covered in olives and red peppers. I call dibs on the big slice.
My sweet tooth is too often the captain of my ship, and dessert is the only time that I have been accused of “not sharing well with others”.
I am an aspiring puppy parent. I LOVE meeting dogs. So much so, that sometimes I forget to interact with the dog’s humans before leaning down to meet my new best friend. Apparently, that is frowned upon in some circles. If I had a “spirit animal”, it would very likely not be anything you would find particularly exotic or exciting. It would be a dog. Because in my book, they are simply the best.
I am over-the-moon excited to share all my favorite recipes with you. Thanks again for dropping by!
