Welcome to Fork in the Kitchen, I’m so happy to have you!
Here you’ll find elevated, approachable, (mostly) vegetarian recipes for the home cook who loves to eat!
Cooking dinner for your family, friends, or yourself, doesn’t have to be overly complicated and time-consuming, and making meatless meals shouldn’t lack flavor, texture, or excitement.
At Fork in the Kitchen, you’ll be inspired by flavorful dishes that are impressive; they will leave you with a gourmet feel that is completely approachable. You’ll be saying “wow, that was so much easier than I expected!” You’ll also find a lot of carbs. And cheese. Because these are a few of my favorite things…
Hi! I’m Becca, a thirty-something living in my favorite foodie city, Minneapolis, MN. I love a good glass of wine (rosé in the summer, red all other times), spicy garlic parmesan popcorn, and lingering, laughter-filled dinners.
While my life mostly revolves around food, I also love enjoying beautiful Minnesota days on a hike or a sunshine-filled patio (with snacks!). I equally love roaring thunderstorms, preferably viewed on a covered porch swing. It’s not all about the weather though (#minnesotan). I adore puppy snuggles, binging Grey’s Anatomy, and game nights.
I approach recipes from the view that meals are best when made with wholesome, fresh ingredients. But food, and life, are ultimately about balance, so sometimes we’ll use cornflakes as a garnish and bake with frozen puff pastry dough. Oh, and food 100% tastes better when it’s made while dancing and when it’s enjoyed with those you love. So let’s turn up the music, pour a glass of wine, and get in the kitchen!
