Ashley Blom is a native New England millennial who is currently cooking and eating her way through Austin, Texas. She’s been writing since the day she learned to hold a pen, and her first book–How to Eat a Lobster and Other Culinary Enigmas Explained–is forthcoming from Quirk Books in April 2017. She has written for Paste Food, FamilyFun Magazine, The Emerson Review, Honest Cooking, The Brattleboro Reformer, and has written a handful of Buzzfeed Community lists as well as had recipes featured on the site.
Ashley lives with her fiancé, Cory, their amazing dog, Lily, and two snuggly cats named Finn and Marceline. She cooks as much as she can for her little family on her student-loan-endebted budget. The results are what you see on her blog, which she has been penning in some form since graduating Emerson College in 2010.
Ashley’s blog and subsequent food writing inspires millennials and beyond to put down the takeout menu and pick up a cookbook. She is entirely self-taught in the craft of cooking and prides herself on creating simple, inexpensive recipes that taste good and at least attempt to be healthy
