About Miss

300 profile choppedcon2014-129

Hey Y’all! My name is Milisa, but most call me Missy or Miss. My husband and I have three sons, three adorable grandsons and a granddaughter. We enjoy life on an Oklahoma cattle ranch.

Growing up in the south, my family owned a catfish restaurant and I grew up surrounded by amazing food.

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 up to a crew of 30. During that time I started my own barbecue sauce business that I later sold and it is still thriving today.

I was beyond thrilled when my barbecue sauce was mentioned in the Wall Street Journal.

After selling the barbecue sauce business, I found myself missing the creativity and connection with people. That’s what led me to starting Miss in the Kitchen in February 2010. Cooking is my passion and I enjoy developing easy recipes for busy families.

Shortly after starting Miss in the Kitchen, I won a Nestle Kitchens Pie Contest and runner up in their holiday cookie contest. I’ve since moved on from contests to working with brands for recipe development and food photography.

My husband loves grilling and smoking and has been a huge help in developing our grilling recipes. We enjoy working together to bring delicious recipes to our readers. That led us to start a second recipe site, Out Grilling. Check it out for tons of grilling inspiration!
