I’m Terri, a competitive home cook and baker and hobby cake decorator. I’m inspired by and enjoy the challenge of developing recipes for cooking competitions because I really have to push myself to be creative.
I love all things food and spend much of my spare time immersed in it. I also tend to ramble on about food. That’s why I started this blog.
Here you will find easy and healthy food for your busy life (with some food art, fun food and desserts thrown in for good measure and because I love to bake!) I will also share handy tips as well as food and kitchen hacks I have acquired along the way.
My original and contest winning recipes have been published in Taste of Home magazine, Saltscape Magazine, Simple and Delicious, Better Homes and Gardens Family Circle Hometown Cooking Cookbook, The Old Farmer’s Almanac Readers’ Best Recipes 25th Anniversary Edition Cookbook, Safeway Destination Cheese Champions, among other publications and on several websites. I also contribute to Clay Pot, an online food journal and write a monthly food/recipe column for The Rocky Ridge Royal Oak Community newsletter.
I live in Calgary, Alberta where by day, I have a great job in primary health care, working with family physicians & their staff on practice enrichment initiatives and integrating and supporting health team members in family practice clinics. But most importantly, I am Mom to Clayton (11), Abby (9) and wife to Dave. And spending time with them is what I love more than anything in this world! Because I am often testing new recipes for competitions, my family and colleagues all serve as fearless guinea pigs for many of my food creations.
On a weekly basis I will share my own contest winning recipes/other food inventions and my favourite recipes. I hope you will find something helpful and/or interesting at Food Meanderings!
