Well hello there, I’m Lauren and I love food! Keeping meals simple, satisfying and accessible to all is the main purpose behind my cooking, but I always add a touch of creativity and uniqueness.I’m a family-taught cook and food is one of my greatest passion in life, but I suppose there is a little more to me than just food. I am a fur-mama to two wonderful rescue pups, Herbie and Nelly and our cat Grayson, who are all part of The Bite Size Pantry household. They love to be with me in the kitchen and they make the cleanup process a whole lot easier. Thanks to the wonderful internet world I’ve been able to pursue my dream of cooking. Sometimes it seems like a lot, but I just love food and I really love sharing that love with others who love it too.
