Who am I? 


Hi, I’m Beige! I’m a passionate home cook who has been obsessing over food since I was 5. My earliest memories are in the kitchen are making homemade pizza with my parents and getting to make my own concoction out of the leftover sauce and toppings. I mixed all the leftover sauce and toppings together in the pizza sauce can and was very pleased with myself. My parents were likely less pleased as they endured countless tastings of my pizza sauce masterpiece and even more batches of failed, over spiced scrambled eggs over the years. I’ve certainly grown as a cook since my days mixing sauce and toppings in a can, but one thing has never changed — cooking is my foundation. I’m happy? I cook. I’m stressed out? I cook. I want to show you that I care about you? I cook for you. Cooking is truly what makes me happiest in life, and I’m so excited to share my food with you!

What if you’re not cooking?

If I’m not cooking (or working, lets be real I have a 9-5),  I can usually be found hanging with my two fur-babies, Roo & Ollie.

I love to practice yoga, run, get lost in a good book or binge a show on Netflix (who doesn’t?). I enjoy skiing in the winter, and spend my time hiking and camping in the summer on weekends. I’m forever a fan of a good road trip, or exploring a new part of the place I live. And, I can’t forget my love of trying new restaurants!
