AngelaWelcome to This American Plate.

This American Plate is really a blog about food and life.  The blog includes recipes, cooking tips and tutorials, restaurant reviews, product reviews, film reviews, entertaining and dinner planning ideas, gardening tips, and details about my journey to a healthier and more productive lifestyle.

I first started this blog as a way to spark healthier and more frequent cooking habits for myself, and then share those with anyone else who may benefit from what I’ve learned. I also love to bake and share my treats with others. You may not be able to taste my treats in real life, but I hope you’ll be able to reproduce them at home with the help of my recipes, links to recipes of others, and the photos that I share with you. The blog is also a part of my journey to be a better person by living with more intention and purpose.

The blog got it’s name simply because I’m an American girl who likes all types of food including my favorites Thai and Mediterranean. Since dinner is my favorite meal time and it’s often eaten on a plate, the blog was named This American Plate.

I truly appreciate your interest in This American Plate, and I hope you’ll keep coming back to visit. Keep up with my latest posts by following me on , or
