My name is Kristen, and I am obviously passionate about food and writing, but I also love music, singing, traveling, reading, and riding my bicycle all over town. I am from Indiana, but I moved to Fayetteville, Arkansas in 2010 and have fallen in love with this town (along with my darling and his son). I am a stay-at-home-stepmama to an amazing little boy with moderate to severe autism. He was diagnosed in July 2014, but I began addressing his special needs when I entered his life in 2012. This keeps me incredibly busy, but I still find time to cook for my little family pretty much every day 🙂
I am also a big loser! I hit my heaviest weight (around 230 pounds) in autumn 2012. With the help of food journaling and joining a gym, I’ve managed to lose nearly 70 pounds so far.
