About Girl Gone Gourmet
Hi and welcome! Girl Gone Gourmet is my personal food and recipe blog where I share the things I love to cook and eat. When I first started the site in 2009 I focused on trying lots of new things in the kitchen like working with unfamiliar ingredients, sharing my kitchen disasters, or just posting random updates like organizing my pantry. In the beginning I was all over the place with recipes – I wanted to make all the things! That kind of enthusiasm is what got me going, but over the years I’ve learned a lot and discovered that the best dishes are the ones that come from the heart. So now you will find recipes that mostly celebrate comfort food – it’s a style of food that I love, so I hope you stay awhile and check out some of the +200 recipes saved on this site. Here’s a few ways to get started:
I grew up in Wyoming and have lived in Colorado, New Mexico, and Texas, but now I call North Carolina home where I live with my adorable 1-year-old, 75 -pound golden retriever puppy, Feynman. By day, I’m an operations manager for a large IT company and in my spare time I work on this blog as the Chief “I Do It All” Officer (CIDIAO?). All of the photography, recipe development, writing, tech support, promotion, and miscellaneous blogging stuff is all done by me. I started this site because I desperately needed a creative outlet and I wanted to tell stories about what I was cooking and eating. Since then there’s been a lot of changes in my life, but the one thing that hasn’t changed is my passion for cooking and sharing what I make with the people I care about. I’m so happy to share this site with you and hope you enjoy what you find!
