Hi! I’m Heather Lynne and I love to cook, bake, and read. During the day I’m a special education teacher in an elementary school working with students who have disabilities as well as at risk regular education students. I love working with my students but sometimes my job can get stressful. That’s why when I get home I turn into Home Chef Hezzi-D.
I currently live with my wonderful husband Frank in Western Maryland. I am originally from Pittsburgh and the difference between the “big city” and life in a rural area has been a big change for me.
Since I was a young child I’ve always had a strong love of reading. I enjoy reading paranormal books, suspense, thrillers, funny memoirs, and young adult and would be happy to review these genre of books from both new and seasoned authors.
I love to bake and cook. I enjoy creating my own recipes or putting a new spin on an older recipe. Some of my most recent recipe creations are Turtle Cookie Cups, Farmer’s Market Pita Pizza, and Herb and Parmesan Roasted Vegetable Pasta. If I had to describe my blog it would be a combination of easy weeknight meals along with some decadent desserts.
