About Me

I’m Julia, the food blogger and recipe tester behind The Domestic Blonde.

I absolutely love, love, love to cook and eat. I think about food constantly. I want to make every recipe I find, and eat practically everything I see.

I’m not exaggerating. In fact, I’m eating right this second.

Lucky for you, I also love to cook for others! Entertaining is one of my favourite hobbies. Of course this means meal planning, staying organized, and keeping my house decently presentable… so you could say my life is pretty domestic.

This little blog chronicles my adventures with making all different types of foods, and everything that goes with it.

And in case you’re curious (or just nosey like me!), I also write about my daily life once a week in Over a cup of tea. If you have questions, check out the FAQ page or contact me.

I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia, on the east coast of Canada (although from 2006 to 2016 I called Ottawa home). My husband and I started dating in February 2008, got married on New Year’s Eve 2014, and recently added a baby boy, Jordan, to our little family. My Other Half loves basketball almost as much as he loves me (Michael Jordan is his hero), rum, perfectly-grilled steak and casseroles with crunchy tops.

Things I love include: soccer, Bridesmaids, gardening, reading for my book club, musical theatre, church, travel, Nigella Lawson, The Office, red wine, Thai food, noodles, hot sauce, perogies, cheese and my crazy family. And more noodles.

You can follow along on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram! If you have a question about a recipe, please comment on that post.
