OK, here it goes: My name is Rachel and I’m a sweetaholic. No, seriously. Chocolate gets me weak in the knees, cake makes me blush, and the mere sight of ice cream turns me into a bumbling fool. Beams of light and choirs from the Heavens sing down upon me with the mention of Bananas Foster and I feel empowered to climb the likes of Kilimanjaro just to get a spoonful!
I am also a health nut.
I know I know, the juxtaposition of those two things sounds a little bit crazy, but it’s true! Asparagus gets me dancing, Brussels sprouts make my heart sing, and salmon? Well, watch out because salmon gets me doing backflips all over the house and I don’t even care how much furniture is in the way!
And that’s pretty much what you’re going to find here. All original recipes, sometimes super healthy, and sometimes super decadent, but always tried and true and tasty enough to get your tail wagging. I live a pescetarian lifestyle, which means I eat fish and seafood on top of the basic diet of a lacto-ovo vegetarian. You will find pescetarian, vegetarian, and vegan recipes on here as well.
I can’t say that I’m the biggest fan of the “put bacon in everything” trend, as I not only don’t eat pork, but I am also the proud mommy of the world’s cutest teacup potbelly pig, Cupcake. Cuppy, as she is lovingly called by her family, is the best critic to have on hand, as she readily devours samples of my latest creations with such enthusiasm that I feel like a world class chef.
I am an actress, model, and freelance artist in Charlotte, NC. Cupcake and I star alongside each other in The Pescetarian and the Pig the web series where I share how-to’s of my favorite recipes, tips and tricks, hosting ideas, and more. The other residents of Woodhouse Farms also make frequent cameos, especially Butter, Jelly, and Banana Sandwich (the egg-laying department).
I hope you enjoy your time here and try some (or all) of my recipes for yourself. Comments, feedback, and questions are always welcome!
Hope to hear from you soon!
Rachel and Cupcake
