Stirring with emotion is a blog that I created to describe the rollercoaster ride of emotional highs and lows that can occur in the kitchen. You see I am a self teaching home cook. I don’t consider myself as “taught” because I’m always learning new things. My goal is to showcase the trials and tribulations of trying new recipes, ingredients and techniques. I want to highlight the ups and downs of cooking, the frustration when things go wrong, along with the exhilaration when your dish turns out to be delicious.
There is no better feeling than pulling off a new recipe just in time for a holiday or preparing a meal for a special occasion and having your food and presentation complimented. I thrive on improvising when plans take an unexpected turn. I enjoy trying new takes on established recipes. There are many emotions and challenges involved in planning, preparing and sharing food. Your creation may not always go as expected but, for me, the journey is the fun part.

I’m a self teaching home cook and aspiring foodie entrepreneur. I enjoy coming up with creative ways to prepare flavorful food such as snacks, desserts and everything in between. Cooking is a way for me to challenge myself and satisfy curiosities about different ingredients.
The hope is to produce something thoughtful, memorable or every once in a while maybe even wonderful. I enjoy following my “gut” and exploring new recipes that can be comforting, exciting and nourishing. Above all else, I enjoy exploring the emotions surrounding food and writing about those experiences. 😝👩🍳👩💻
