Hey there, my name is Haley Rich! I live in Central Jersey and I’ll be graduating from high school this spring. I’ve been cooking for over 4 years now, and in January of 2013, I decided to combine my love for cooking and photography and make a food blog. I originally started on tumblr.com (blondieinthekitchen.tumblr.com) but eventually moved over to WordPress a few years ago.
Alright, now comes the harder part. Let’s see… I’m a taurus, not that I pay any attention to horoscopes… I was a competitive tennis player from age 9 to age 15, until I fell in love with running, and now run cross country and track year round… I am a total control freak who is constantly writing to-do lists and obsessing over what needs to get done… I am my school’s student council president; I adore planning events like Homecoming and fundraisers and I cannot believe this is my last year as a Pirate… I have an older sister who is my best friend, and a dog (he and I aren’t on as good of terms)… my preferred television shows are America’s Next Top Model and Keeping up with the Kardashians because I’m a terrible human being… and that’s about it!
Cooking-wise, this blog is a little bit of everything. When I was 14 or 15, my parents gifted me a pasta roller for my birthday, and ever since making homemade pasta has been a passion for me, especially because it’s one of the few dishes my picky sister is guaranteed to like. During cross country season, I run upwards of 45 miles a week, so I don’t often skimp on the cheese, bacon, and carbs–some of my favorite foods.
