I'm Angie and this is my blog. I never know what to say on these "About Me" pages. I always feel like I'm filling out one of those online dating profiles. haha.
I married my sweetheart in Feburary 3, 2007. Thomas (who is normally mentioned as "Big Bear") got his nickname name when he was in the military. So that's where my name comes from, I mean...I think you kinda figured that out ;)
When we got married I started to teach myself to cook because I didn't want to live off of boxed food, take out and frozen pizza. I also wanted my husband to eat something other than "steak and potato", that's all he ever wanted to eat. I'm proud to say that he now eats broccoli and steamed spinach; I never thought that would happen. :)
I started this blog back in 2009, as a way to save the recipes that I loved to make. By January 20009, we had only been married for 2 years and we were already living in our 2nd house. We were getting ready to move again, this time back home because Big Bear (that would be my husband) was getting out of the military. I had been writing recipes down in a notebook and had dozens of recipes that were printed out and stuffed into a folder. Needless to say they were a mess and every time I packed up boxes to move houses, I seems to loose half of them. One night while watching the FoodNetwork, I learned about a food blog called "Peanut Butter and Julie" and immediately went to my computer and looked it up. I feel in love with the blog and knew that I wanted to start one to keep all of my recipes in one place! Originally I thought I'd use it just as a online "searchable" place to keep them and it has turned into so much more.
Last year, Amanda from Amanda's Cookin took me under her wing and taught me so much about the Food Blogging word. From photography tips, to cooking tips, to PR tips, she's taught me a ton! I am so glad that I can call her my friend.
Sharing recipes with people makes me smile and I love it when family and friends come to me with questions about cooking or baking.
Thank you for taking the time to check out my little blog here and I hope you'll come back again!
