Hey Everyone! Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the blog world. My name is Liz, and I’m lactose intolerant and a vegetarian. You can read more about my diet here.
I eat a ton, bake a lot, and cook a little as well. You’ll find all sorts of these food adventures on my blog. I try to stay healthy, but let’s face it, everyone deserves a brownie or cookie (or two!) every once in a while.
I think life is too short to restrict what you eat (unless of course it’s for medical or religious reasons) but with that being said, I also believe that you can eat what you want.
I eat a lot of salads, I love hummus, adore cupcakes, and these guys are one of my favorite snacks. (A popular blog recipe as well!)
While I’m only a vegetarian, I do consume small amounts of dairy and eggs, but you’ll often find my food to be vegan. One day, I’m sure I’ll become a vegan myself, but for now, I’m perfectly happy not consuming meat and trying to minimize my dairy and egg intake. Every little bit helps! : )
I was born in Dearborn, Michigan, and lived outside Ann Arbor, Michigan until I was seven, when my family moved to North Dakota. (Has anyone seen the movie Fargo? Lol.) The winter’s were long and freezing, but it was a nice place to live. My junior year of high school I spent in Belgium as a Foreign Exchange Student, learning to speak French fluently and gained five younger sisters and another awesome set of parents. (Oh, and 22 pet donkeys. No joke.) After high school, I moved to the east coast for college.
In the fall of 2010, I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in baking and pastry arts from Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island. I’m currently living Indiana with my parents and getting my Master’s degree in Family and Consumer Science Education from North Dakota State University.
I don’t want my blog to become my life, I want it to be a product of it. When I’m done with school I want to move somewhere fun like Chicago, or Seattle and teach for a few years, and it’s my ultimate goal to join the Peace Corps and live in Africa.
So I hope you’ll stick around and enjoy a few recipes, and once again, thanks for stopping by!
