Who Am I?
My name is Theresa and this is my blog. I’ve always been fascinated with food and cooking. As a child, I refused to order off the kid’s menu because the food on the regular menu sounded so much more interesting! Fortunately my mom was always happy to let me eat off her plate. How many toddlers can say “filet mignon”? As I got older I learned that cooking food was just as fun as eating it.
I grew up in Indy, but I’ve lived in Florida, Rhode Island and Washington. I’ve been back in Indy for a few years and I’m still rediscovering it. And while I really enjoy the Hoosier state, I also like to travel. Most recently I’ve visited Ireland and Jamaica. Right now I live on Indy’s Northwest side with my dogs, Bailey and Guinness.
I created this blog to indulge my inner fat girl (and I jog so that no one actually meets her). You’ll find everything from local restaurant reviews to product reviews to my own recipes here. I’m always looking for new ideas and recipes–I can’t wait to hear from you! Share a comment, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or follow me on Twitter.

A Note to Local Businesses
If you would like me to review your restaurant or product, please send me an email. I’m happy to respond to requests. Here are the rules I follow to keep my reviews as unbiased as possible:
- I review restaurants and products that fit the theme of my blog. This means I review locally owned restaurants and products produced by Indiana businesses. Rarely, I write reviews about non-Indiana products or restaurants that I encounter in my travels that I feel are of particular interest to my readers.
- I always disclose to my readers if I have been given something for free or at a discounted price.
- I do not write good reviews about a restaurant or product simply because it was free. My reviews are honest and reflect my own opinions. That being said, it is never my goal to slam a business. If I have a truly dreadful experience, I am more likely to just not write the review.
- I do not accept payment to write positive reviews about a restaurant or product. If I recommend something it’s because I truly like it. If you are interested in hiring me freelance to write about your business outside of my blog, please email me.
