About Me

Author: Cooped Up Chick

For as long as I can remember, food creation has always held almost magical qualities to me. I can recall as a child watching in awe as my mother made supper. Her ability to juggle cooking 3 or 4 items and making them finish at the same time astounded me. Or when she would bake a cake and I would watch through the window while it was raising…wondering if I would ever be able to do that. To date I still believe my mom is the best cook ever but I continue to strive to be equally as talented in the kitchen as she is.

I have been collecting recipes from magazines, books, friends & relatives for over 20 years with the intentions of trying them someday. So far most of them have only been collecting dust. That’s about to change. Photography and cooking have always been passions of mine and a great (and ingenious) friend suggested I combine the two and create a blog. So that’s where “A Cooped Up Chick” came from. This blog will chronicle my attempts at the aforementioned recipes. I will include my successes and my failures, what I have or would change about the recipe, pictures (I LOVE recipes that have pictures!) and of course, I will include the recipe itself.

I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and trying out the recipes yourself, as much as I am certain I will enjoy writing them. Happy cooking!
