My name is Beth Lee and I live San Jose, California with my Dormant Chef husband, two arugula-loving kids, and a carrot-loving cockapoo named Scooby. In my first career, I told stories for Silicon Valley companies in printed words, pictures, and ultimately online. Interrupted by life, I took a detour from high tech marketing and eventually realized I’d rather talk about pita chips than memory chips.
With a little tech support from my son, I started OMG! Yummy in February of 2010. When I’m not cooking, photographing, writing, or eating!, I love to golf, pretend I’m a world traveler, and explore new grocery stores just for fun.
Everybody has a Story
When I started blogging, I discovered something really intriguing: the best stories are told in the kitchen and everyone who has a kitchen (or eats in one), has a story.
My food memories unfold in my bubbe’s tiny New York City kitchen which was no larger than the single cabinet, stove, sink and refrigerator it contained. Her workspace was limited but her baking talent knew no bounds. Even in her early 90’s, she still greeted us with hot home-baked challah bread, whose smell sweetened the hallway of her old apartment building on Avenue N on most Friday evenings. With none of her kitchen skills or recipes documented and her inspiration still alive in me, I strive to document our family food experiences for my kids to have and to share with their families.
I also hope that OMG! Yummy will inspire you to get in the kitchen, gather around the dinner table, share a story, create a memory, or just enjoy a nutritious and satisfying meal with family and friends.
Pull up a chair, what’s your story…?
