In Search Of Yummy-ness is a lifestyle blog for people who enjoy (or want to enjoy!) cooking and gardening.
I share delicious seasonal recipes, as well as gardening tips to help beginners grow vegetables and herbs in their balcony, porch, or backyard gardens.
I'm a food media professional and former garden centre associate who now creates cooking and garden digital content full-time.
My education was initially in journalism and media studies, but then I went on to (accidentally) create a portfolio career around food.
It started when I landed an internship on a cooking show for Food Network Canada back in 2018.
In just four months, I learned how to input a recipe on a website, how to plan, shop for, and make snacks for a crew, and I picked up some cooking skills as well!
Since then I've worked at several different jobs that involved meal planning, grocery shopping on a budget, and cooking for both people and media shoots.
I also worked in a garden centre for three summers, where I had received training on garden and lawn care.
I've always enjoyed puttering around in the garden, but working there gave me a new appreciation for how much you can grow in a small space.
I hope you'll find some inspiration and information here that will work for you. If you ever need to reach me, just send me an email and I'll do my best to respond as soon as I can.
I have an Honours Bachelor Degree in Media Studies, and a diploma in Journalism, from the University of Guelph-Humber.
I also completed the Culinary Arts Certificate Program at George Brown College in 2021.
Additionally, I received nursery certification training at my previous garden centre job.
