Hey! I’m Allie and I was born and raised in NJ. While I will always be a Jersey Girl, I am now living in Philadelphia with my boyfriend Jay! Food has always been important to me. When I was learning how to talk one of my first phrases was, “I hungy Ma!” and my favorite toy was my Fisher Price kitchenette. In high school I couldn’t decide if I should go to school to become a nutritionist or a fashion related career. And here I am, at 23, eating, sleeping, breathing, dreaming! about food and cooking.
My dream to become involved in the fashion industry became more than a dream in May of 2009, when I graduated from Philadelphia University, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Fashion Industry Management.

Oh, and if you think Jay and I look different, it’s because we do. I lost 20 pounds after this picture, and Jay lost 100! You can read more about it here!
After working in the fashion industry for several years I finally listened to my heart and well, my stomach! Between cooking, baking, recipe hunting, creating recipes and food blogging, I realized what my true passion is. I’m still deciding what I’d like to do as a career, but one thing is for sure…it will involve food!
