Welcome to Girl with the Iron Cast!
Food has always been a big part of my life. Coming from a family of amazing home cooks, some of my fondest memories include food and how it brought us all closer together. You could literally taste the love in every bite you took.
I’ve always wanted others to love cooking as much as I do, which is why I created Girl with the Iron Cast. Whether you are a beginner cook or advanced, my goal is to provide you with easy to follow homemade recipes that inspire you to get in the kitchen and get cooking! Indulgent recipes, healthy recipes, world cuisines, and different styles of cooking. I am here to inspire you, grow your love for food, and help create memories through cooking.
Why the name Girl with the Iron Cast?
In February 2018, I was involved in a freak accident that snapped my arm in half. For 8 months I had multiple surgeries, equipment installed/re-installed and there I was unable to do what I loved the most, cook. Cooking meant so much to me: my hobby, my stress reliever, my creative outlet, my love language. It was clear that cooking meant more to me than I thought. So I started gathering all my recipes, old cell phone food photos, and decided I’m going to share these recipes because if I can’t cook them right now, maybe someone else will. Maybe I can inspire someone to love cooking as much as I do. Then Girl with the Iron Cast was born.
Girl with the Iron Cast.
The perfect play on words, not only for my love for cooking and my new metal accessories in my arm… but how tough iron is, what it can endure, and what I can endure.
Finally over a year later I am healed and getting to do what I love again, COOK! They say everything happens for a reason and I guess if that accident didn’t happen, I wouldn’t have created this platform.
If any of my recipes can inspire you to cook more or just develop your love of food more, I’ll be one happy gal!
Thanks so much for being apart of the journey, now let’s get cooking!
