About this Site and the Grocery Girl
Welome to www.grocerygirlcooks.com, a food and grocery website (blog) serving the Midwest region of the U.S. and beyond.
This site is intended to help busy people like you, by providing grocery lists and recipes, so your life can be streamlined and more enjoyable. You’ll also find some restaurant reviews here – usually only if I think the restaurant if worth writing about. And, in the interest of good stewardship and frugality, increasingly I’m providing links to relevant free samples whenever possible. Your questions and comments are welcome!
Here’s a little bit about me, The Grocery Girl (Written in the third person, to give myself some perspective):
Regan Olson’s first job at age 14 was as a busgirl at a supper club restaurant. She, through no fault of her own, was soon promoted to salad girl. She learned how to do such things as core lettuce in that role.
Approximately 25 years later, she now can safely say she has worked within the hospitality industry – even though she has a degree in Psychology. (How’s that for food for thought.)
She thoroughly enjoys cooking for her husband – and occasionally other people as well. (She likes to go out out to eat!)
Regan is a self proclaimed Food Network addict. She also regularly scours food websites and magazines for inspiration. She tries to put a lot of what she learns into practice. Did you know you can steam an artichoke by sitting it up in an onion ring? (That tidbit came from a cookbook; a thing with paper pages.)
She also has some pretty mad couponing skills. She coupons a bit differently than some of the experts, but her way may work well for you.
Regan lives in suburban Chicago with her husband, Peter. She designs products for her store Grocery Girl Cooks. It’s filled with fun and fabulous food and non-food related items that you might enjoy looking at: http://www.zazzle.com/grocerygirlcooks.
