Ally's Sweet and Savory Eats: About Me

About Me


Thank you for visiting!

Back in December of 2009, I was a stay-at-home mom of a 3 month old little boy and I needed an outlet.  I had recently picked up a cooking magazine and they had highlighted a "food blog".  I must have been living under a rock, as I had never heard of such a thing.  Or I was just knee deep in feedings and diaper changes. Regardless, I thought the idea was brilliant.

I jumped on the computer, posted my first recipe {homemade biscuits if you are wondering} and here I am still going strong almost 5 years later.  In the beginning the only people reading my blog were friends and family.  More than likely out of sheer guilt that they had to, or I would disown them.

Since those early years so much has happened.  I went back to work full-time, had our daughter in March of 2011, changed jobs and scaled back to part-time, paid off a huge check of debt and now the husband and I just welcomed baby girl #3 in May of 2014 and I'll be staying home with the kids and my blog full-time.

I've come full circle.

This little food blog has grown into a much bigger food blog, but still has leaps and bounds to go.  It is no longer just friends and family reading my posts, but rather people from all over the world.  It still floors me to know that my recipes have reached people that far, that they actually care about a thirty-something Iowa girl.  

In the past few years I have be able to work with some wonderful companies both in the food and public relations business and I enjoy every minute of it.  I only hope to continue this journey for many more years to come.

Until then, drink in the yummy bites.  I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoy cooking, baking and sharing my food ideas with you.

Best,

Ally
