Hi I’m Chris and welcome to Kindly Sweet.
I started creating food recipes, photographs and videos back in 2013 under the name Burnt Macaroni and just recently changed the name to Kindly Sweet. I love creating recipes and stories around them but found myself drawn more toward baking these days.
You can still find me creating a yummy dinner recipe on another one of my sites called Our Dinner Stories. ODS is a great place to find what you are looking to make for dinner or to read stories created around some of our favorite meals.
I also love a good cheese board and for that, please visit A Cheese Board for all of your inspiration around cheese. Although you may find a cheese board pop-up on Kindly Sweet and Our Dinner Stories too!
Growing up an Irish girl from the Bronx, our cooking style was simple…meat and potatoes! My Ukrainian grandmother added a little spice to our life but I must say, I grew to love Irish Stew and Irish Soda Bread! You definitely have to check out my Grandmother’s Irish Soda Bread recipe. As I ventured into the world, my palette grew and my love for food and the experience of a great meal became my hobby. I love that food is a great equalizer. And nothing is better than good food, good conversation, and good friends!
As a television producer, I have met some incredible chefs who inspire me. I had the distinct honor of meeting my greatest inspiration of all, Julia Child. What a lovely woman! I was hoping that someday her good cooking mo-jo would rub off on me. Fingers crossed! I thought you might enjoy this photo! It makes me smile whenever I see it.
My dream of writing is also starting to come true. I was so excited to be featured on “The Huffington Post” as part of Arianna Huffington’s Thrive series. Here’s a look at my article “I Wanted to Be Successful and Raise my Kids”.
I am also a member of the Today Show Parenting Team! I am honored to be part of this amazing group of parents.
You can also find some of my family recipes on the great family website, Kids Activities Blog! I am honored to write and create recipes for this amazing family resource. Here are just a a few of those original recipes:
I hope my journey will teach you something new about baking and cooking. And if you have any great cooking tips or secrets that I can use, please feel free to leave me a comment below. You can always email me at [email protected]
Bon Appetite and Happy Baking!
My love for blogging has turned from a hobby to my new passion and work path. I love sharing my favorite family recipes along with new ones I find along the way. I also love to share ideas, DIY videos and products I use. All of the products I share are products and services I use and completely believe in. I will never share anything with you that I don’t love and use. I also use affiliate links to help support my blog.
