Hi, it’s nice to meet you!

You know those cooking mistakes you make in the kitchen? The ones where something goes wrong and it’s not what you were after, but you still end up with a delicious-looking dish on your countertop? We call them “Hot Messes.” You know, because they’re messy. And hot.

Here are a few fun facts:

My name is Sarah. Yes, there is an unspoken rule to ask if you meet a ‘Sarah’ if they are part of the ‘h’ or ‘no h’ club. Sarah vs. Sara.

  • Insert the cliche ‘I love coffee’ statement here. Specifically this type of Joffrey’s coffee.
  • I am not as organized in the kitchen as I would like to be.
  • I’ve burnt the absolute crap (2nd degree burns) out of myself with a cup of Oodles O Noodles.

Most days my microwave is filled with a bag of goldfish crackers, a loaf of bread and a half eaten cookie cake. My sink does not know what it feels like to not have a load or more of dishes in it waiting to be washed.

The Hot Mess Kitchen is a food blog that celebrates these cooking mishaps by teaching readers how to be better cooks in the kitchen through our recipes. My mission is to help people become better cooks by making them laugh at their own failures, encouraging them to try new things, and giving them new skills for when they inevitably mess up again.

There is so much more to tell including how I am working to maintain a healthier lifestyle to combat a chronic, allergic inflammatory disease and how I am a few recipes shy of having a complete family cookbook.

Where the magic happens

More often then not, you’ll find me in the kitchen with family preparing meals! We love to create new things together and enjoy traditional family recipes!

Where you can find me!

When I’m not in the kitchen, you can find me sharing our travel stories or finding a new restaurant in town. I love sharing my day to day on Instagram, so be sure to connect with me there!
