Thanks for checking out my blog! My name is Andrea and I have had a passion for cooking and baking for almost as long as I can remember. I grew up in the restaurant business (my family owned and operated several restaurants in the Northwest) so naturally I have always gravitated towards food. I have an amazing husband of 25 years and 3 kids. We also have the best dog in the world named Emma!
I have titled this blog Cutting the Apron Strings for a couple of reasons. My kids are growing up and moving away, ready to start their own lives and now I have the time to dive into something new. I have been a stay at home mom for more than 23 years. I taught yoga for 15 years. I worked in the restaurant business for 14 years. My children are growing up and out…time to reinvent myself!
I love trying new recipes and tweaking them to make them my own. My plan for this blog is to share my story and of course some delicious recipes. Hopefully I will inspire you to try some of them!
