Curly Girl Kitchen:
Home to my baking, writing and photography passion, Curly Girl Kitchen is a collection of original recipes, stories and photos, since May 2011.
The Writer, Cook and Photographer:
I'm Heather, and I'm behind everything you see on my blog, from the creation of the recipes, the food styling, the stories and the hopefully mouthwatering photos. I consider myself an artist, unofficially, and this blog is an artistic expression of my passion in the kitchen.
Currently I live in a 3rd floor condo in Denver, Colorado, with my boyfriend, but we dream of someday having a house with a huge rustic farmhouse table where I envision lots of relaxed dinners with family and friends, tea parties with little curly-haired girls who take after me, homework and great conversations.
To me, the kitchen is the heart and soul of a home. It's the place where everyone gathers, where people feel warm and comfortable and full, where the lovely aromas of apple crumbles, freshly baked breads, flaky pie crusts, warm pots of soup, cinnamon and sugar and steaming coffee permeate the rest of the house, drawing everyone back to the kitchen.
The kitchen is where I feel inspired to create beauty through food.
Jamie loves his BMW, doughnuts, steak, and me, not necessarily in that order. We met in June 2009 and spent many romantic Friday evenings planning and cooking dinners together, and those experiences are ultimately what led me to decide to create this blog.
He's my love and biggest supporter, who waits patiently, never complaining as our food gets cold while I try to get the perfect photo, tastes everything I make and eats it whether it's a success or not, gave me my camera for my birthday a few years ago, puts up with all my "food styling", and always giving me his honest opinion and helps me brainstorm for new and fresh ideas. I don't know what I'd do without him!
Oh, yeah, and in the fall of 2011, we met Alton Brown at a book signing! :)
