Well hello there! I’m Rachel and I really love food! I started cooking at age 11 when I put a half cup of baking soda into a batch of cookies instead of a half teaspoon. Because…what’s the worst that could happen, right? The cookies were a spectacular fail and it got me interested in cooking. I’ve taken courses on cooking every chance I’ve gotten in life. It has amassed to several years of culinary education. Thanks to the wonderful internet world I’ve been able to pursue my dream of cooking, all while staying at home.
Not only do I share recipes on this blog, I also create video recipes on Youtube, I do recipe development for various food brands, and I even published a cookbook. I was contacted by The Food Network last year and hope to someday make it work with them. Sometimes it seems like a lot, but like I said, I freakin’ love food. And I love sharing that love with others.
Obviously food is my greatest passion in life, but I suppose there is a little more to me than just food. I am a wife and the mother of two school-aged children who are part of The Stay At Home Chef team. They often help in cooking and even appear in some of my Youtube videos. My husband, the go-to taste tester and programming expert, is a Computer Engineer and has his own “nerd blog” if you are into that kind of thing. Together, the four of us make up The Stay At Home Chef team.
I suffer from a rare autoimmune disease. After experiencing congestive heart failure, liver failure, and kidney failure while I was pregnant with my second child, my life was spared when my doctors finally figured out I had Addison’s Disease. John F. Kennedy had it too, so that pretty much makes me cool. The disease ravaged my body and left me disabled. I even have a handicap placard. Instead of wallowing in pity I’ve chosen to defy my condition and find ways to revel in life despite my disability. Despite my best efforts, it still plays a major role in my every day life. (you can read the long story here).
I love to connect with readers! No really, I do! If you’d like to contact me you can email me at email@example.com. You can also find me on instagram, google+, facebook, pinterest, and twitter. Phew! That’s a lot of places!
