The I Heart Naptime Cookbook

More than 100 easy and delicious recipes to make in less than ONE hour.


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 my own recipes.

Where are you from?

I was born and raised in Arizona. We’ve moved around a lot of my husbands 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 salsa with a side of guacamole. My favorite dessert is always cookies!

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 and across social media channels like Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.

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.
