Hi, I’m Andie Mitchell. I am a 27-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.
Six years ago I lost 100+ lbs and have maintained a healthy weight ever since. 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 write to you everyday, sharing my life and love of good food because it’s what I believe in. Cooking and baking are at least half of who I am. The other half is chocolate.
The fact that anyone visits daily and is treated to a plate of my antics and a mug of my musings is a blessing. They deserve a medal and a cookie.
I am currently writing my first two books- a weight loss memoir followed by a cookbook. Both will be published by Clarkson Potter, a division of Random House.
