Well hello there. My name is Erin, but some people call me Red and then there are others who call me Cookie and a few who call me Barren Erin (it’s a long story). I was born and raised in Wisconsin, where I ate a lot of ice cream, donuts and cheese.
I work in motorsports, which has led me on great adventures all over the country. Since I left Wisconsin I’ve lived in Topeka, Indianapolis and now Atlanta. I live by myself, so my co-workers and race track compatriots are generally the benefactors of my baked goods. I have no impulse control when it comes to good food, so anything I make must immediately leave the apartment! I call it my “bake and release” program.
My days, thoughts, moods and conversations are generally based around food. My love of food requires me to keep active, so to balance my diet I hit the gym everyday and run a good bit. I also tend to eat pretty dang healthy when I’m cooking for myself, so don’t be surprised if you come across a lot of vegetarian items in this blog. I’m fascinated by both vegan and paleo diets – weird I know.
My plan for Adventures of a Hungry Redhead is a heavy dose of crazy good sweets, a dash of healthy cooking, a splash of tips and tricks, a handful of restaurant reviews and a side of workout motivation. You down?
