Leanna here, welcome to The Hungry Waitress! This blog has been my online home since 2016. It's where I share and archive family recipes, recipes I have created and some lessons I have learned in the kitchen. It's been my learning tool and has lifted me out of many ruts. You could even say it has changed my life because ... well it has so far! Here's a little context:
Back in 2011 I graduated with a marketing degree, and like most students, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. So, I started waiting tables and I fell in love with the restaurant industry. I could work nights, sleep during the day (I'm a night owl) and I met so many interesting and wonderful people (including my husband).
I waited tables for nine years! NINE YEARS!! It's crazy to think about now. After you work in a place for nine years the romance of it all wears off, and I realized I was stuck. I past the window to use my degree to get a job since my resume only consisted of restaurant work. So, I decided to take some web design classes at a community college.
I was hooked. I love design, art and being creative in any capacity, so web and graphic design became the perfect compliment to my marketing degree. I wanted to get a job full time as a web or graphic designer but I had no portfolio or experience. So I decide to start this blog to get me out of the restaurant rut and into the next phase of my life.
Cut to ... the blog has become my passion and creative outlet, and I hope one day it will be my full time gig!
I hope you enjoy my little piece of home!
