Hello and Welcome to The Seasonal Junkie!

The Seasonal Junkie is dedicated to inspiring all you to use the ingredients that nature annually gifts, for a short period of time.

A little about me:

A Minnesota transplant, flourishing in sunny Arizona. I have always loved food, but it wasn’t until I pursued my degree in Nutrition that I fully appreciated it. Learning the different ways food fuels the body and mind was just so interesting.  Three years later, I found myself standing in front of a wedding cake display at Arizona Culinary Institute actually crying from it’s beauty, in front of my tour guide. Yes, I am theatrical. Without a moment to spare, I enrolled. A year later, I received my culinary arts certificate. I quickly discovered my passion was in recipe development, styling, and photography.

A fun fact about me, is that I feel I cook the best only when every single cupboard is open in the kitchen. This also happens to drive my other half insane, but who is feeding who here? When I’m not cooking, I am usually on a mountain somewhere doing headstands…. or running, I run a lot. I have to work off all the cheese and carbs somehow.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy The Seasonal Junkie and would love to hear any thoughts!
