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!
