Welcome to my blog!

Thanks for checking out my new blog. I know what you’re thinking…. ‘oh great, another food blog.’ Believe me, I had the same thought. But hopefully I’ll be able to keep it varied enough to make it interesting for both of us.

Here’s everything you need to know about me:

My name is Jackie. I’m a 27-year-old Philly girl, born and raised in the suburbs, currently living in center city. I spend my days working for a publishing. Nights and weekends are reserved for running, eating, cooking, the Phillies, and quizzo.

I am a lover of most things food-related. I cook for my friends and family whenever I get a chance. A few years ago, I got into cake decorating and baking, and opened my own cupcake catering business, Cupcake Karma. It was definitely a learning process. I learned that turning a hobby into a business can really take the fun out of it. So I have taken a step back to refocus and remember what I loved about it all.

Somewhere along the line, I picked up running. Originally, I was just fed up with being overweight and running was the only way I could think of to shed some pounds. 80 pounds and a few years later, I can’t imagine my life without it. I completed my first marathon a month ago, and almost immediately after I finished, I signed up for the next.

I look forward to sharing my race successes and failures, recipes, restaurant reviews, and other food/cupcake/running related tidbits with you all.
