Hello and welcome!
I’m Ronda and this website is my cozy little internet space. I develop, prepare, and photograph all the delicious food you see on my website. I specialize in creating quick and easy recipes perfect for today’s hectic lifestyles — lifestyles just like mine!
For the past 5 years, I’ve been a flavors and scents Chemist by day and a food blogger by night, loving both of my jobs – I just can’t see me giving either of them up. So currently, I am living my creative dream keeping both my analytical outlet open by day and curbing my creative foodie outlet by night.
Yes, it’s hard sometimes, but I enjoy the fast-paced challenge of juggling both of these amazing careers.
Honestly, there’s really nothing I love more than cooking for my family and friends but I don’t want to spend all my time in the kitchen – I want to spend my time with them socializing outside of the kitchen!
So having a repertoire of 30-minute meals, quick and easy appetizers, and easy yet elegant party fare is an absolute must for me.
In my kitchen, I show you how to take your favorite foods and make them quicker and easier to prepare but still full of flavor!
These streamlined dishes are ready in just 30-minutes (or less) without sacrificing flavor or authenticity. My goal is to deliver easy, family-friendly recipes ANYONE can make!
I typically use fresh, natural ingredients in my recipes but also will give you quick kitchen tips on how you can swap out some of those items for some healthy convenience items to fit your busy schedule.
I will show you how to make these recipes perfectly the first time and every time you prepare them.
My recipes have been featured in Parade Magazine, Shape.com, BuzzFeed, The Huffington Post, Redbook Magazine, WikiHow, Vegas.com, Epicurious, SheKnows, LifeHack.org, FoodGawker, and Foodista.com just to name a few.
I’ve been published in both the digital and print versions of Taste of Home Magazine, Taste of Home Annual Recipes 2016 Cookbook, and The Classic Slow Cooker: Best-Loved Family Recipes to Make Fast and Cook Slow with my own original recipes.
My Shrimp and Grits Cupcakes and Shrimp and Grits Canapes have won awards locally and digitally on JustaPinch.com. These awards are what catapulted me into launching my food blogging career.
I have had the pleasure of working with many National Brands through sponsored posts creating and marketing unique content and recipes developed specifically for each of them.
It’s also been my pleasure to meet and work with Paula Deen for the launch of Paula Deen LIVE! & the Paula Deen Network. Now, I’d like to work with you.
If you’d like to work together, please contact me through my website or e-mail me at Ronda at KitchenDreaming dot com. I’d love to hear from you.
