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 team.

{We are also the Food Blogger Pro team!}


My “real job” is teaching elementary school age kids how to read and write and do math. I thought about becoming a full time blogger once, but my heart needs to teach. I love it.

Last year Bjork and I had the opportunity to work at the orphanage in the Philippines where my three siblings lived before being adopted. These girls were my students and they made my days very, very happy. Here’s a page with more information on the orphanage and the beautiful kids who call this place home. It’s a slice of heaven on earth.

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 better do heart-deep things like following Jesus, living simply, and caring.

Here’s more about why I blog.
