Heidi is a wife and mother of two, living in Lincoln, Nebraska, who left her executive position in non-profit management to focus on her true passion: cooking, content development and food writing. Prior to the non-profit sector, Heidi worked in marketing and brand development for international cosmetics companies. In addition to theKITCHETTE, Heidi can periodically be seen and heard as an actress and voiceover artist with credits spanning decades.
Heidi has been blogging and writing for twenty years, and cooking and creating recipes since she was eleven. Her recipes are influenced by: growing up in Nebraska with East Coast roots, living in Santa Monica for six years as a poor newlywed, her English and Norwegian grandmothers, and cooking food with a "flexitarian" bend--limiting meat while still enjoying it occasionally.
Heidi is a self-trained home chef who believes cooking food, the food you want to eat and share with others, should be a happy, low-stress experience, and it should relieve you from the day-to-day heaviness of life giving you something to look forward to. Heidi says she develops her recipes with a "no frills" approach, keeping the cooking efficient and delicious and most of the time nutritious. "Good (real) food doesn't need a laundry list of ingredients or hours of kitchen prep time to turn out deliciously-anyone can make this food and feel great about it--both in the cooking and the eating."
