Welcome to The DIY Foodie!
My name is Victoria and I am SO excited that you are here! I created The DIY Foodie to inspire you to cook! Many people are afraid or uncomfortable when it comes to cooking and it is my goal to make cooking a little easier. Every recipe on this site has a difficulty level and fits into different categories. Please let me know if you have any questions about cooking! I would love to help.
Everything I learned about food and cooking I learned from my mother and grandmothers. They are my inspiration in the kitchen, which is where I spend most of my free time. I live in Salt Lake City, Utah with my puppy Romeo and my husband, Dallin. He has to act all tough and buff and healthy because he works in the fitness industry. But really, he loves it when I make desserts. I know that because they disappear very, very quickly.
When I’m not in the kitchen my free time consists of…okay let’s be honest here, going to movies with my husband: large burrito, large popcorn (half kettle corn, half popcorn – no other way) large drink and a movie. And then finished off with some ice cream. This is our life.
My guilty pleasure? Chocolate. Dessert. Anything sweet. But it usually has to have chocolate in it.
My confession? I very much dislike seafood. All of it. I wish I liked it. Every time someone around me is eating it for dinner, I try it. But I just can’t do it. Maybe it’s the idea of eating little fishies…I dunno but something about it just doesn’t work for me. I do like some sushi. Ya know…the roll with steak in it…yeah laugh at me and tell me that’s not sushi. I can pretend, right?
My bucket list consists of one thing: travel.
It is my dream to buy a one-way ticket to Europe and…well just see where it takes us. One day it will happen. I am determined. And just think of all the wonderful food I could blog about! Italian pizza, German chocolate, Spanish tapas…
I hope through The DIY Foodie you are able to find some help throughout your cooking journey! Please don’t hesitate to reach out.
