I am Kristy, creator of Mommy Hates Cooking. I am a work at home mom, who started this site from my hatred to cook and my desire to learn to love it.
My husband used to handle all the cooking duties but when his shift at work changed, I was forced to cook. That was a very sad day in my life, I had to cook? I hate to cook! It was embedded in me by a mom who also hates cooking. My mom taught us to love a clean kitchen, and when I cook it all becomes a mess. I began cooking each day and soon realized we were eating the same meals every single day.
My husband came home one day and told me he had one request, no more pasta! I had to take extreme measures and teach myself how to cook. My hatred for cooking led me to reach out to others and create Mommy Hates Cooking. This was a way for me to take something I hate and grow it into something I learn to love. Over the past several years, I have done just that, I am learning to love to cook.
Shortly after delving into the world of cooking, I also learned a vast amount about menu planning. That has lead me into teaching classes locally on menu planning along with publishing Menu Planning 101!
I work with brands on a variety of levels including recipe development, contributing articles, reviews, and giveaways. If you would like to find out more of the brands I have worked with please visit my PR Page.
I am also a Campaign Leader with Collective Bias/Social Fabric. The campaigns I have worked on with Collective Bias include Tyson, Starbucks, Nestle, Mars, and many more coordinating hundreds of bloggers over a period of time focusing on marketing a particular product.
I have a background in Trust Accounting with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fashion Marketing and Business from Northeastern State University.
I hope you enjoy the ride through my love/hate relationship with cooking and share the journey with me.
