I’m so glad you’re here!

Hi, my name is Becca

I’m the voice, creator, and CEO of taste testing here at Fork in the Kitchen. What started in 2015 as a hobby, quickly filled every spare minute of my weeknights and weekends that I wasn’t teaching first grade.

Fast forward five years, and it turned into a full-on business that reaches hundreds of thousands of people looking to make easy, approachable recipes each month.

I live in Minneapolis, MN, and love kitchen dance parties, carbs, and a good glass of wine. I am so excited to start cooking with you!

vegetarian recipes everyone will love

Here at Fork in the Kitchen, you’ll find elevated, approachable, (mostly) vegetarian recipes that everyone will love.

I fully believe that cooking for your family, friends, or yourself, doesn’t have to be overly complicated and time-consuming. And most of all, that making meatless meals shouldn’t lack flavor, texture, or excitement. 

Recipe Testing

Every recipe you’ll find here at Fork in the Kitchen has been intentionally developed. I take the time to research flavor pairings and ingredients to ensure the best-tasting combinations. After developing the recipe, it’s tested a minimum of three times, adjusted at iteration as needed, and sometimes with outside recipe testers.

For more complicated recipes, especially baking, many more recipe tests are usually needed. A recipe can take up to 10 recipe tests before it finds its home on the site!

You’ll find links to the equipment used in my kitchen in almost every post, or you can find it on my shop page. Find tips and tricks for the most success both throughout the recipe post and in the recipe card. My goal is to provide you with the most information for you to recreate the recipe in your kitchen.

More About Becca

🎓I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Minnesota in Elementary Education. After graduating, I moved to Baltimore, MD where I taught first grade and attended Johns Hopkins University for my Master’s Degree.

🏝️Then, I moved to the beach in North Carolina, where I started FITK.

👩🏽‍🏫Eventually, I moved back to my home state of Minnesota, where I continued to teach for several years before the blog turned into a full-time business. I couldn’t stay away from the classroom for too long though, and am back teaching a middle schooling cooking class elective — so fun!

🌻While my life mostly revolves around food, I also love being in nature, snuggling up with a good book, and game nights. 

🍿I’m obsessed with stovetop popcorn, all things garlic, and the best homemade bagels.

✈️I also love to travel. My favorite way to learn about food is through travel, and exploring cultures through their favorite dishes.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s behind the name?

I have always found solace in the kitchen, whether it was meditatively kneading dough or dancing it out while stirring risotto. When I started the blog, I was in a serious time of transition, not knowing which “fork in the road” I would take, but I knew being in the kitchen would continue to ground me. Thus, Fork in the Kitchen was born. Read more in this post about the first year and our origin story.

What’s your journey been like over the years?

Up until 2021, I wrote birthday posts each year FITK continued on. Year one is linked above; read the rest here:
