Hi Everyone! I’m Rosie and I’m the sassy lady behind this blog, and the I Heart Recipes YouTube channel . I’d like to personally thank you for visiting my blog!
I’m busy wife and mother that enjoys cooking, baking, and entertaining. I was born and raised in Seattle Washington( and I still reside here ;-D ) I was raised by my mother, and her family. I grew up as the oldest child with many responsibilities, and cooking was one of them. I started cooking at the age of five, and by the time I was 12 I was making full course meals.
Why did I start blogging and etc?
I actually started my YouTube channel out of boredom. On my 26 birthday I was bored, and had nothing to do, so I made a YouTube account. It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do with it, but eventually I started uploaded recipes, and cooking tips. To my surprise, people actually tuned in! I creates this blog so all of my viewers would have a resource other than my YouTube channel to print out recipes, look at pictures, and to etc.
What does this Seattle lady know about southern cooking?!
I grew up eating southern and soul food. My mom’s parents were from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. All of their recipes were passed down to their kids, and so on. I eventually picked up a few recipes, and put my own twist on them.
