Hello! I'm Alicia. I'm the writer and recipe-tester behind This Home Kitchen.
I grew up in a small rural town in southwestern Pennsylvania. I met my husband in high school and we've been together ever since! In 2009, we decided to move to North Carolina so that we could be closer to the coast.
I'm a beach girl through and through. Outside of my home kitchen, the beach is my favorite place to be. I love the salty air, the sound of the waves, and all the fresh seafood! We make the, now thankfully short, trip to the coast as often as possible.
In 2017, we welcomed our first child, our daughter Evie. Three years later, we had our son Connor. We also have a dog named Bo and a cat named Tallulah (Tally for short).
I have always loved to be in the kitchen. Cooking and baking, mostly from scratch, are activities that bring me a great deal of joy. After I had my first child, the need to be in the kitchen feeding my family delicious homemade meals became ever more important. Follow along as I share recipes from my kitchen to yours.
