Hey There! I’m Rebecca!
I’m the girl behind the goodness here on Sugar & Soul. I born and raised in Maine and still live here with my husband, our daughters, and our fluffy golden retriever.
Why I Started Blogging
I went to school for business management and spent a few years working as a paralegal at a local law firm while I built my side hustle into a successful business! I started blogging because my husband is an accountant and during tax season, I was a bored tax-widow and wanted something to fill my time. Little did I know, a few years later this would turn into my career!
How I Learned To Cook
But what inspired me to start a food blog? I think it was growing up in the kitchen making Banana Bread, Molasses Cookies, and Pecan Pies with my Grammie. Or how excited I would get every time my mom would whip up a batch of No Bake Cookies or Brownies. Clearly, I love me some dessert!
Then I married into an Italian family and my husband absolutely loves to cook! So we’ve spent the last seven years developing and sharing sweet and savory recipes from our kitchen with all of you!
Though we’re mostly self-taught, we’ve taken tons of cooking classes with the Maine Grain Alliance, Stonewall Kitchen Cooking School, and others throughout the years to build our knowledge and share our best kitchen tips and tricks with our readers.
We want you to be successful in the kitchen, so we’ve spent hours, days, and weeks testing the recipes on this site to make sure they’re perfect! We never want you to worry that your recipe won’t turn out and we want you to show up at every event with a dish everyone will be begging you to share!
This site and job really is a dream come true and it’s all because of you, my readers! So thank you for making and sharing my recipes and travel guides! it means the world to me and I hope it makes your lives a little easier and way more flavorful!
I also couldn’t do all of this without my team who assist me with writing, editing, recipes testing, tech, and design!
