Hey there! My name is Chrissy, and I’m the face behind The Hungry Kitchen! Food is one of the things in life that I’ve always loved, and I wanted to share my passion for it with all of you. I hope you can find something on here that inspires you to create deliciousness in your kitchen!
As far back as I can remember, I've loved everything about food-- eating it, cooking it, and learning about it. Growing up, I was always watching Emeril Live and the original Iron Chef. On weekends, you could find me watching infomercials for the latest and greatest kitchen gadgets. (I might be the only kid ever who asked for the GT Xpress for their 14th birthday...) and I am still the proud owner of my Magic Bullet Blender for going on fifteen years!
One of my biggest influences is my grandmother. I’ve learned a lot of tips, tricks, and old school techniques from being in the kitchen with her. She is an amazing woman, and so inspirational. For as long as I can remember, we have an annual “cookie day”, where we spend all day baking Christmas cookies. It’s always been, and continues to be one of my favorite days of the year.
My grandma has taught me that you can never use too much rum in rum cake, and to always scrape the bowl completely to not waste the goodness inside of it. She taught me that it's always fun to experiment with new things in the kitchen, and to always have fun with baking.
For me, the kitchen is my place to escape. It's my place to relax when feeling overwhelmed, and my place to play around when I need a creative outlet. I do not have any professional training in the kitchen, and I in no way claim to be a pro. I’m just doing what I love, and learning by (A LOT of) trial and error as I go.
Thanks a bunch for popping in! I hope you find something on here that bring you joy to eat, make, or share! ♥
