When did you start I Heart Naptime?

I started I Heart Naptime in 2010 during naptime (hence the name). Friends were always asking for recipes, so I decided it would be easier to post them online. A year later I decided to start to turn it into a business. Since then we have posted 1200+ recipes on our website.

Do you have a cookbook?

Yes, we’re proud to offer The I Heart Naptime Cookbook. You can purchase it here.

How did you learn to cook?

I’ve been cooking and baking for 20+ years now. My love for cooking began as a little girl in my grandma’s kitchen. I loved being her taste tester and when I began college I began experimenting with creating my own recipes.

Where are you from?

I was born and raised in Arizona. We’ve moved around a lot of my husbands medical training. We’ve lived in Ohio, Oregon and currently reside in California.

What’s your favorite food?

Such a hard question. My favorite snack would have to be chips and homemade salsa with a side of guacamole. My favorite dessert is always cookies!

What do you enjoy doing for fun?

I love to travel to new places and try new restaurants and bakeries. I love going on long walks on a crisp morning. I love creating. I love snuggling up on the couch with my family for a movie night.

How can I get your newest recipes in my email?

What are your favorite cooking tools?
