My name is Liz and I’m the “nut” of “A Nut in a Nutshell”. <— Rebrand coming – new name!
I started blogging to fill my time when my baby went to college, and yes, I’m the mom of two kids in their early to mid-twenties, gasp! Fortunately, I was quite young when I started having kids, so I’ve got all kinds of life and goofiness left in me even though they’re gone.
My roots are in the Midwest, but I moved to coastal North Carolina about two years ago.
After college, I was working in the Travel & Tourism industry and loved it, but gave it up to stay home and raise my two kids. No regrets, of course!
I love spending my time in the kitchen creating and tweaking recipes and trying out new kitchen tools and methods of preparation.
When I’m not making something myself, I most definitely enjoy dining out and traveling. Experiencing new adventures is one of my greatest joys in life!
And I’m so happy that through blogging and social media, I’ve been able to share my passion for lifestyle, food, travel, tech, entertainment and house & home with you!
Welcome to A Nut in a Nutshell!
