I LOVE FOOD. Cooking it, eating it, looking at it…really everything about it. So does Jamie, which is why I’m so excited for you to get to know her today! Her blog, Cooking in Red Socks, is food centered and absolutely amazing. She features delicious recipes and various places that she’s dined along her baseball journey. All of her posts leave me hungry for more and always feeling inspired to try out a new recipe. She’s also a bride to be, so I love when she gives updates about her upcoming big day…’cause who doesn’t love a wedding?! But seriously, just go check out her blog and you will see what I mean (don’t forget to wipe the drool from your face )!
Current Organization: Red Sox- Pawtucket AAA
Years in Baseball: This is my fourth year living this crazy life!
Do you travel with your fiance: We live together in season, but I work where we are living and don’t actually travel on road trips.
How long have you been traveling with him and what are the best/worst things about it: We have lived together for three years; the best part is that we get to explore the country together and I get to be by his side as he makes his baseball dreams come true! The worst thing, packing! Definitely packing.
Tell me a little about YOU: I went to Bucknell University to study Business Management before attending Culinary School in Philadelphia. I love to spend time outside- hiking, running, or enjoying lunch on a sunny day. My favorite hobby, of course, is exploring new foodie things- farmers’ markets, restaurants, food trucks…. I’m up for anything!
Tell me about your blog: I started Cooking in Red Socks at the beginning of 2012 as a way to share my recipes and food stories. Before I knew it, my blog became my best travel buddy. Writing about my experiences makes me get out and explore! It’s such a wonderful excuse to see the places we live and travel to. This past April I also became a blogger for the Cooking Light network, which I am so thrilled to be a part of.
What is your favorite, go to recipe: If it’s late after a game and I don’t feel like really cooking, I always make my quinoa “fried” rice. It’s super healthy and easy to make. Ryan normally eats it for breakfast, too.
What does your cooking “toolkit” consist of: If I could, I would travel with an entire U-Haul of cooking equipment. We do keep a storage unit on the east coast in the off season, so I have a bit more stuff than the average baseball wife. My absolute essentials, though, are good knives, my miniature food processor, a microplane, and a mini cupcake tray (which is weird). I end up using it for so many appetizers and desserts, I can’t imagine not having it with me!
