About Me

Hey, y’all! SPK-About-Me-Page-Photo-1

I’m Amber, and welcome to Slim Pickin’s Kitchen! Here in my piece of the interwebz you’ll find a smorgasbord of my culinary creations that are simple to pull together and share with friends and family.

A little about me? I’m a 30 something southern sassafras from Charleston, SC who is learning how to juggle it all: working part time as a marketing manager, volunteering at church, , raising a preschooler, maintaining a marriage, fighting a brain tumor, and sharing ministry meals whenever I can.

From learning how to make homemade vegetable stock, to whipping up supper in 15 minutes to blending up a fresh, fruity cocktail for one, I’m here to make your life easier!


I was born with a cuisine gene and am mostly self-taught, but over the years I have earned a BFA in Creative Writing from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and I’ve dabbled in the study of culinary arts, photography, social media management, digital marketing, and graphic design.

I am senior marketing account manager for Green Bag Designs by day, a blogger by night, a mom to a preschooler, the wife to a car insurance estimator, and I suffer from a slew of medical problems including degenerative disc disease of the lumbar spine and panhypopitutitarism due to a craniopharyngioma brain tumor. There may be times when my recipe posting is slow, but I can promise I’ll get back to it ASAP!

I’m also constantly plugged in to Instagram, Pinterest, & Facebook so feel free to follow my crazy antics and adventures and see pictures of my son and cats.
