Hey there! Welcome to my Soapbox!
The Soapbox, a place where I pour my thoughts about life and, of course, food, is ready for you to dive into. If you’re here, it means you share my passion for cooking, eating, and all things delicious. So get ready to whet your appetite because I love crafting fun and simple recipes that can be easily made at home.
Let’s talk about my undying love for food. I embrace it all, from fresh and crisp green salads to indulgent, cheesy pasta dishes. I don’t shy away from butter; in fact, it’s practically a food group for me. And when it comes to solving any problem, chocolate is my cure-all, while a glass of wine elevates any experience. And let’s not forget to sprinkle a bit of bacon for good measure – it’s my secret ingredient to winning hearts.
My family adores dining out, and it’s become somewhat of a routine for us. That’s why many of my quick and easy recipes are inspired by dishes I’ve savored at my favorite restaurants. Whether you’re into healthy-ish dinners or gut-busting desserts, there’s something here for everyone. You’ll discover gluten-free favorites that were unintentionally gluten-free, and I always make sure to include seasonal ingredients and easy-to-find products in my recipes. No need for a scavenger hunt at the grocery store!
Am I a trained culinary professional?
Nope, I’m a self-taught enthusiast who’s had my fair share of kitchen fails. However, those failures have taught me valuable lessons, and my determination to create a better version of whatever I enjoyed at a restaurant has rewarded me with a repertoire of tips and tricks that I can now share with you. Prepare yourself for a website full of mouthwatering recipes and, occasionally, some run-on sentences! Each of my easy recipes is an original creation, tried and true, with the seal of approval from my very picky family.
The picky family?
Let me introduce you to the team that rules my kitchen: my little guy, the real boss of the house; my daughter, who’s never inside the house; my husband, who thinks he runs the house; Cooper, the pizza crust lover and rescue dog; Calvin, the independent feline who loves no one but himself; Penny, the second rescue cat; and Pickles, the hermit crab (who has since passed and been replaced by Madonna, the Chameleon). Rest assured, no recipe makes it onto this site without their collective seal of approval, unless I strongly override their opinions!
In addition to my culinary escapades, I dabble in the fashion and home decor world, binge-watch Friends, pretend to have a green thumb in my garden, and jet off to NYC to indulge in tasty treats. You might even catch me live on my local Fox 29 Good Day Philadelphia or contributing to the Today Food Club!
Remember, all recipes, crafty inventions, photos, and stories you’ll find here are my very own, unless explicitly stated otherwise.
If you have any questions about the recipes or would like to partner with me, feel free to email me at Kellie@TheSuburbanSoapbox.com.
Now let’s embark on a culinary journey together and explore the wonders of cooking corn!
