My Life on a Plate started in August 2009. I am an avid reader of food blogs and I felt inspired to join the blogging community as a way to document my cooking and baking adventures. I love the sense of community among bloggers and I appreciate comments and emails from readers. I appreciate the informal, interactive, and candid nature of blogging. If I receive any ingredients or products for free, I'll always let you know. I do not promote products or services that I don't use or like.

Offline, I have a full-time career, a husband, a very active toddler and two dogs. I hate doing dishes, so I'm fortunate to be married to a man who happily cleans up in exchange for good meals.

I'm not a journalist or a professional chef. I'm an enthusiastic home cook. Sometimes I create my own recipes, sometimes I cook from existing recipes, and other times I modify recipes to suit my taste. I believe that a recipe is just inspiration for your own custom dish.

I generally cook from scratch. I do not limit myself to organic ingredients, but I do like fresh, local ingredients, whenever possible. During the summer months I use vegetables and herbs from my own garden. I occasionally use convenience products, but they must be of good quality.

I love to cook and bake and I love good food made with fresh ingredients.
My goal is to get people to believe in their own ability to cook great meals, desserts, and snacks. I aim to inspire you to I believe that cooking should be an art, not a chore... especially if someone else does the dishes!
