What is the name of your blog or book and how did you get started?

I started this blog Nosh with Chef Julie after I graduated college from Johnson and Wales University with a degree in culinary arts in 2016. Going back to school fueled my passion for cooking and writing so much more. After that, I decided to create cookbooks of my own and I’ve been writing daily ever since.

What is your favorite food?

If I really had to pick one I’d go for some pho every day, after that I’d have to say dessert.

What foods do you crave all the time?

Snack wise I love chips and salsa or peanut butter toast with banana and honey. In addition, salty and sweet pairings are my weakness like yogurt pretzels! Along with those, the foods I usually crave are takeout foods for example like Mexican dishes, Asian foods, and Indian curries.

What is your favorite comfort food?

I love a big bowl of pasta or Mexican foods like enchiladas and tacos. Similarly growing up I always craved the spaghetti and the taco salads my Mom use to make.

Connecting with other writers, seeing comments on my blog, and reviews for my books is always nice.

What advice do you have for new writers just starting out?

Most importantly, move beyond your fears and just write what is in your heart and don’t be afraid to put your work out there.

What do you like to do for fun?

I love to go on hikes and be outdoors. Watching sci-fi movies like Star Trek and old classics with Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe are some of my favorites. Furthermore, I adore cooking, and collecting cookbooks is a hobby of mine. In my downtime, I like to read mysteries and ya fantasy books with magic and dragons. Anything with a heroine story always gets me. In addition, I also dabble in painting on canvas and I try to go to art museums when I can.

What helps you to stay motivated and keep writing?

Getting feedback from my readers and connecting with other writers is always inspiring. In addition, I’m always trying to push myself to learn more and become a little better every day.

I engage with other writers on my social media sites, and blogs on a daily basis. I’m learning SEO techniques to help with optimization and traffic to reach out to more people, and I promote my books regularly.

As a writer, other authors inspire me to be better. Above all, my readers also keep my wanting to do my best and keep going.

What are you reading right now?

I’ve been reading Joanne Fluke lately. She writes a series of food-themed murder mysteries and I’m a sucker for all of them.

What is something about yourself most people don’t know?

I had an older brother Troy (he was 19 at the time) that I lost to suicide when I was 16 years old. In spite of going through it, I’m stronger now in my faith and more humbled. At that age and going through what I did was grueling, traumatic, and I felt helpless. One organization that helped me and my family get through it is The Compassionate Friends. They are a non-profit that helps families and people going through loss and grief. For information, to get help, or to donate go to

What is a typical day of writing look like for you?

First I wake up make coffee and check my reports. Then I engage on my social media sites and work on writing my next book or blog posts. After that, I follow up with fellow writers and bloggers for tips and advice and connect with my audience on social media.

I’m currently working on a new candy and cereal-themed cookbook. Easy recipes using boxed ingredients with a fun twist. To sum up, recipes with nostalgic ingredients take you back to your childhood.
