A little about myself…

My name is Ashley Marie Huegel. I grew up in a small town in northern Wisconsin, wrestling deer and avoiding moose. I moved to Brooklyn, New York in 2009, with my boyfriend Matthew. It has been an incredible experience.

When I was growing up in the frozen tundras of the north, I did not get exposed to a large variety of dishes. Being in New York has opened my eyes to a larger world of flavors and foods; all of which I hope to learn and incorporate.

For me, food is an outlet for my creativity. It allows me to share an artistic experience for all of the senses. I enjoy and feel proud when cooking for others; which mostly ends up being Matthew, and anything that falls on the floor for our cat, Bella. In the end though, I love to bake and to cook.

In this blog, I will be sharing my journey in the kitchen; from the basics, to the new and challenging. I hope that you will find something of interest, or even be inspired to try along with me.
