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 for people like me: busy, hardworking folks who don’t have a lot of time or money but want to eat real, whole food meals that are simple to pull together.
I am a 30 something southern sassafras from Charleston, SC who is learning how to juggle it all: working from home, growing a successful blog, raising a preschooler, maintaining a marriage, nursing a (benign) brain tumor and cooking fun and nutritious meals in a short amount of time with not a lot of money!
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 digital marketing account manager for Green Bag Designs by day, a blogger by night, a mom to a preschooler, the wife to a car insurance claims adjuster, 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 up!
