Who I Am

Bjork and Lindsay

Hi and welcome! I’m Lindsay, and I do the cooking, writing, and photography around these parts.

This is my husband Bjork, and he’s in charge of the tech support and income stuff for Pinch of Yum. Plus he’s cute and I like him. Together we’re the Pinch of Yum and Food Blogger Pro team!

I’ve spent the last five years teaching elementary schoolers by day and blogging about food by night, loving both “jobs” and never wanting to give either of them up. I always went back and forth about becoming a full time blogger, but in June 2014, I officially made the jump and I couldn’t be more excited to be living this crazy work-for-yourself-and-talk-about-food-online dream.

Last year Bjork and I had the opportunity to live in the Philippines for a year where we worked and taught at an orphanage. This is the place where my three siblings lived before being adopted so it has always held extra special significance to us. Here’s a page with more information on the orphanage and the beautiful kids who call this place home. We ❤ CSC!

In the cooking department, I’m a food enthusiast with an appetite for almost anything. I love to cook vegetarian dishes, but we’re not strictly anything when it comes to what we eat. I love desserts, especially straight up salted dark chocolate. I try to cook things that are practical, interesting, and delicious. I adore noodles, curry, lentils, and pasta. Is that the same as noodles? Doesn’t matter. I love it all.

Some of my favorite things in life are chocolate chip cookies, lake runs in the fall, Mexican food, cute pugs, the Philippines, and learning how to be better at things that really matter like living simply, appreciating people, and following Jesus.

Here’s more about why I blog.
