When did you start I Heart Naptime?

I started I Heart Naptime in 2010 during naptime (hence the name) while my toddler was sleeping. 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 or at any major book store.

How did you learn to cook?

My love for cooking began as a little girl in my grandma’s kitchen. Over the past 20 years I have been testing and creating my own recipes and have taken many classes and courses over the years to be come a better cook.

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, California and recently moved back home to Arizona to be by family.

What’s your favorite food?

Such a hard question, I love all food! ;) 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 my morning walks to start the day. I love creating. I also love snuggling up on the couch with my family for a movie night with a big bowl of popcorn.
