Hey guys! If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m the Heather that likes food.

I’m a mom of 2 spunky girls and a baby boy that is quickly becoming more squirmy than squishy. I sure love my husband who is diligently working on his doctorate and most days I’m a grad school widow, but life is good.


I’m a cheese popcorn junkie. I don’t exercise as much as I should. I have too many purses. I’ll never turn down a plate of fried zucchini. I like nuts in my chocolate chip cookies instead of chocolate chips. I can’t get this song out of my head lately and I once made Kenny Loggins a sandwich.

But that’s not why you’re here, is it?

We’re here for the food and that’s good because it’s kind of my thing. I’ve bounced all around the food industry since graduating from culinary school 9 years ago.  I’ve worked cafes, restaurants, rehab center cafeterias, had my own cake decorating and catering business, an online candy business, and am now settled in on the web. I’ve been working on Heather Likes Food for a little over 3 years now and have loved it! I don’t think I’ll ever want to put my camera down and step into a steamy commercial kitchen again but don’t quote me on that!

My goal on Heather Likes Food is to help you feel like a total rock star in your kitchen.  I’m a firm believer that you don’t need to spend hours in the kitchen, have a degree in cooking or spend lots of money on fancy ingredients to make excellent food. Usually with a little know-how, the simplest ingredients taste the greatest.

As you cruise the site I hope you’ll comment and feel free to shoot me an email, tweet or message me on Facebook if you have any questions. I’m still trying to figure out how keep up on the website while being a good mom and grad school widow, so If I don’t respond right away please be patient. I will, I promise!

Thanks again for reading,
