Hi, I’m Andie Mitchell, a 29-year-old passionate writer, recipe developer, 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.
Eight 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 had a library to fill with my thoughts on food, eating, and weight loss. I had a zillion and one dishes in my recipe box to share. A kitchen to invite you all into.
I write to you now, sharing as much of my life and the food that’s filling it as I can — because that’s just how weird I truly am. The fact that anyone visits and is willing to put up with all of it — well that’s just a blessing (for me). Those folks are deserving of something. I was thinking a cronut, but I think it should be better than that, honestly.
What do I do besides this blog?
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.
I’m also the Social Media Director for The Shriver Report. Check it out!
