About Miss

300 profile choppedcon2014-129

Hey Y’all! My name is Milisa, but most call me Miss.  I live  with my husband and three boys on our cattle ranch.

I love my family, I love to cook and I love to read.  Growing up in the south, my family owned a restaurant.  Needless to say I was surrounded by good food, of course I was too picky to enjoy very much of it!  My, how things have changed.

I learned to cook from my Mom, my Mother-in-law, from studying stacks of cookbooks and of course Food Network.  I spent several years cooking for cowboys on a ranch, some days feeding upwards of 30 mouths. These days I mostly cook for my husband and the boys, two teenagers and our little fellow who is in fourth grade.  I guess you might say the portions are not too much smaller with two teenage boys in the house!

About 10 years ago I started my own barbecue sauce business that I later sold and it is still thriving today. (Recently mentioned in the Wall Street Journal!!) I really missed the creativity and connection with people that came with a food business, so I started Miss in the Kitchen in February 2010.  I really enjoy developing new recipes and I continue to learn more about food photography.

Recently I entered and won my first recipe contest and it was so much fun!   I was chosen to participate in the One-Pot Blogging Cooking Party to promote Emeril’s Sizzling Skillets and Other One-Pot Wonders cookbook and I was also chosen as the top participant.  I  also came in runner up in the Nestle’s Holiday Cookie Contest.

Since winning the Nestle contests I have developed a relationship with the company that has led to me developing and testing recipes for Nestle products.  This is a dream come true and I hope to continue to build on that experience with other companies as well.

I also have a social media management business called Miss Media.  For details on how I can help your company or your blog grow, visit the Miss Media page.

I’m glad you found Miss in the Kitchen and I hope you will continue to come back.  I love reading your comments so feel free to drop a line on your favorite posts!
