Hi, I’m Andie Mitchell, a 28-year-old passionate cook, baker, and friend to chocolate. Cooking and baking have always held a special place in my life — from the creation to the consumption. I am home in my kitchen. My heart, my history…they belong to that space between the stove and the sink. On any given day, I’m dreaming up a new recipe, eating a peanut butter and fluff sandwich, and/or embarrassing myself publicly.
Seven years ago I lost 100+ lbs and have maintained a healthy weight ever since. (Check out the weight loss posts I’ve written here.) I started this blog because I wanted to share my own walk through life, loss, and love of food. I had a library to fill with my thoughts on food, eating, and what goes best with chocolate. A zillion and one dishes in my recipe box. A kitchen to invite you all into.
I am currently editing my first two books: a weight loss memoir to be released in February 2015 and a cookbook to follow. Both will be published by Clarkson Potter, a division of Random House.
