I’m so excited to share today’s Saturday Spotlight with you! Meet Lizzy from That Skinny Chick Can Bake! She not only has great baking posts, but other wonderful recipes, too. I know you’ll enjoy checking out her blog as much as I do.
I'm a mom of 3 grown kids who are all living at home (2 post college, one a senior in high school) along with my hubby and our sweet dog, Lambeau. I've always loved to bake and entertain...so my blog is just a new avenue to share my favorite recipes. I think the number one question on my blog, is how I am able to stay slim. Well, I am careful about what I eat (my real life friends will attest to this), and I exercise daily...but today, for example, I sampled a bit too much banana cream pie! I hit the treadmill each day and attend hot vinyasa yoga practice 2-3 times a week.
How long have you been blogging?
About a year and a half.
How did your blog get started?
I'd been reading other blogs, and I thought I'd share photos and recipes with my friends. Now I have a LOT of new friends...most of whom I've never met!
What are your favorite foods?
Peaches, garden tomatoes, rare ahi tuna
SO many...locally (Indianapolis), I love Taste, Recess, Meridian, Cafe Patachou. In Chicago: Table 52; Las Vegas: Bouchon; San Francisco: Boulevard; Aspen: Olives.
One of my favorite recipes is Nigella's Chocolate Raspberry Pavlova. It's impressive and delicious.
Favorite childhood memory of food?
It must be my mom's love of experimentation. We lived in a small midwest college town, but she would go to the small international store on campus to find orange flower water, wonton skins, etc. to use in new recipes. She would build gingerbread houses each Christmas and deep fry rosettes.
Favorite food tradition?
It has to be our holiday baking! My kids and hubby LOVE when I make the first batch of fudge for the plates of Christmas goodies I give to our friends and neighbors.
Ever been to Utah? If so, do you have a favorite Utah restaurant?
Growing up, we spent our summer vacations in our family van driving across the states...so, yes, I've been to Utah, but I think we were only passing through. I remember the Bee Hive road signs :)
