About Me



Hello, there! 

I'm Rachael.

And if you can't tell already, I LOVE FOOD.

It's not just the fact that I get to eat it that I love it. It's mostly because I love what it has taught me and what it allows me to experience. The memories I've made centered around food, friends, and family are very dear to my heart. If you are reading this, I bet the same goes for you—which is probably why you are visiting.

Creating a Foodie was started when I was in the middle of a divorce, and I had a lot to process. In my sudden day-to-day struggle/discovery of what it meant to live on my own and actually be ME for the first time in my life, I found that my time in the kitchen was strangely healing, both physically and emotionally, and before I knew it, I was finding my very happy and very independent Self.

That was over eight years ago--and here I am, still cooking, still writing, and still learning.  My hope in sharing my experiences with you is that I can become your friend, not just in the kitchen but also in Life—a friend who tests, struggles, and learns right alongside you (and eats. Let's not forget eats!). 

I hope that, together, we both continue to find the courage to take chances in the kitchen and in Life and discover a more healthy and happy us!
