Hello, and welcome to Noshing With The Nolands. I’m Tara, and along with my husband, Ken and our daughter, Amber we love to spend time in the kitchen creating culinary delights.
I have done many things in my life. My first career was nursing which I did for 20 years. It was very fulfilling but I needed a creative outlet. This led to a gift basket company that I had started from scratch and grew it into a large business including a retail card and gift store which also provided promotional items and corporate card giving.
After our daughter arrived I made yet another career change to a sales representative for a number of years; I started thinking of ways to be home with the family more and that eventually led to me doing this blog.
Cooking, baking and entertaining have been a lifelong passion for me. I started at a very young age to bake and cook for my family. I even attempted many of Julia Child’s recipes as a young teenager.
Now I love entertaining and celebrating the holidays. Ken loves being in the kitchen creating right along with me and has now started his own blog BBQing with the Nolands. Amber also has been cooking for a number of years and while in high school has worked as a prep cook and does some of the cooking for the blog too.
Noshing With The Nolands has grown over the years since starting in 2012. Not only will you find many scrumptious recipes to try, and a new how-to section, you can also read about the places we have been and some of the restaurants and events we have tried locally and on our travels.
We hope you enjoy our posts and continue to join us on this culinary journey. You never know what we will come up with next!
Feel free to share your comments and ideas with us. We love to hear from you!!
