Introducing... Me =)

Welcome to my blog. My name is Andrea, and I am a 26-year-old dental hygienist to be. 

It has been a long and difficult two years of learning, both academically and clinically, to be a dental hygienist. In the end, unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, I have to wait until next summer to take my licensing exam. In the meantime, I decided to take a break and pursue the three things I love most: writing, food, and crafting. 

I have always found it easier to write than to speak. I'm more opinionated on paper than I am vocally. Believe me, when I get nervous, I stutter and stumble over most of my words. I'm usually the quiet one when I'm out with a group of friends. I think I spend more time listening to people than voicing my thoughts and opinions, which is why I consider myself a wallflower. Sometimes I think I'm a little too shy to be noticed. But not when I'm writing.  

I started this blog to share my ideas and recipes for dinner and desserts. Mostly because with a busy schedule, I know that sometimes it can be difficult to find time to cook. I also get frustrated sometimes when I come across a recipe I want to try, but there is a long list of ingredients, most of which I don't have on hand. So with this blog, I hope to help people become more motivated to cook using every day ingredients. I want to create a blog with recipes that are inspired from other recipes and yet are simple. 

What I really want to emphasize is the use of ingredients that you like. Just because I use certain vegetables or berries in my recipe does not mean that you can't substitute with ingredients that you like. So feel free to use what you have and what you love to eat because what's the point of eating if you don't enjoy yourself?

Thank you for visiting my blog, and have fun with cooking. =)
