Welcome to The DIY Foodie!

Profile PictureMy 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 manages a gym. 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.
