Hi, I’m Angie… that is me: on the right I live in Des Moines, IA though my heart will always be in Ames. “A Pinch of This” reflects my cooking style, and my lifestyle. I am incredibly laid back in the kitchen, and am always looking to add my touch to a dish. I started blogging after I got married, and moved away from Ames. I used to be able to readily share my cooking with roommates and friends nearby. My cooking has gotten more varied since Matt prefers me to change it up quite a bit, so it’s always fun to share what I’m excited about at the moment.
Outside of the kitchen, I am also incredibly laid back 🙂 I am a terrible housekeeper, and depend upon my husband to keep said kitchen clean. Someday we will have a family, but right now we are waiting to become a host home, or foster home, to an adult with an intellectual disability. I help my husband make and sell a lawn game called Kubb. We have a blast playing, and making this game! And, I work as a hairdresser. I’d like to teach myself how to embroider, and sew in general. I would also like to be better at keeping in touch with my family and friends… but hopefully this blog of my life happenings will help fill in the gaps 🙂
Thanks for stopping by… linger awhile if you’d like! Feel free to make my recipes your own, and let me know how it goes!
