Beyond The Kitchen


As much as I love the kitchen and even more the food that comes out of it, I am also passionate about a lot of other things in life. I am a total girly girl and love all things that make me feel like one. I enjoy clothes and makeup and lately I’ve really been into staying healthy. I’ve learned to enjoy going to the gym and doing something that’s not only good for my body but for my soul.  I also enjoy working out my mind. I am a huge reader and sometimes can find myself swept away in what I’m reading and forget about everything that needs to get done (except for cooking). Also I enjoy it because.. well cable is expensive and library books are free lol.

I live on a budget like most of us do. I am not cheap but I am frugal. I would love to be carefree but I cannot afford it. I use coupons and buy things only if they are on sale.  I will never buy something that I cannot afford and will sacrifice one thing to buy another. I learned that in life and in the kitchen you buy what you can afford and you make the best out of it. I keep grocery costs down by buying what’s in season and planning my meals around sales.  If chicken is on sale one week then guess what I’ll be making for dinner? I know that a lot of us are in the same boat and I want you to know that even on a budget you can live well and eat well. And trust me when I tell you cooking at home saves a lot of money!

With that being said I can’t wait to see what I can learn from all of you and hear what you recommend.  I am so excited to start this new journey with you guys and can’t wait to see where this will lead me.  I want to thank you for taking the time to come and get to know me and lets go beyond the kitchen….
