In her own words,
Maintaining a blog and a website takes time and commitment, especially when the focus is food. Follow me around for a week and you’ll see me scouring local farmer’s markets for the season’s freshest produce, working in my organic garden, and testing recipes in the kitchen with my toughest critics, my son, Kenya (4), and daughter, Chloe (2). Why do I have such a love affair with food? It’s been in my blood for as long as I can remember.
I grew up in Louisville, KY and, thanks to my parents and grandparents, had an understanding very early on of the impact food has on our health and well-being. I was taught to respect food and learned about gardening, composting, canning, and shopping at u-pick farms and farmer’s markets; traditions I’m passing along to my kids.
I started modeling in my teens and soon found myself traveling the world, spending every spare second learning about and experiencing the local cuisines. Craving more, I saved up my money and enrolled at The Institute for Culinary Education in Manhattan.
Fast forward a few years, I got married and had my beautiful baby boy, Kenya. When he was ready to start solid foods, I spent hours on the internet researching feeding tips and fresh, healthy recipe ideas, but came up short. I found myself having conversations with friends who struggled with the same issues and I quickly became their go-to girl for baby and child-friendly recipes. I believed that if it helped them, then there just might be a lot of new moms out there looking for the same guidance. That was my “aha!” moment…and my next baby, weelicious.com, was born.
