Welcome to The Juicy Pepper. Oh, how I am so happy that you’re here. Let me begin by telling you that this place is a safe space. We welcome all different walks of life here. We value kindness, love, and light and accept nothing less than that.

With that being said, let me tell you the story of how The Juicy Pepper came to be. Originally, this blog was named “Hot Spot Foodie” as I envisioned that the majority of my content would be reviews from different small, local restaurants and businesses around the country and world. It was a way to allow me to travel and document my memories while also lifting up others dreams and passions. Though, my vision grew one night when a couple of my fiance and I’s friends were gathered around our dinner table. And can you guess what I made for dinner that night? Yep, that’s right. Stuffed green peppers.

So my friend’s boyfriend is eating my peppers, looks up and says “I don’t know how you got them so juicy but it’s working. You should rename your blog ‘The Juicy Pepper.'” Lightbulbs go off, inspiration strikes and they begin helping me cultivate ideas.

My vision for this blog now incorporates many of my passions: cooking, home health, support of small, local business and spreading love and kindness. This blog is similar to my idea of a diary… just broadcasted to the world. And I am happy to share.

I hope while you’re here that you find inspiration like I did from my friends. I hope that you are encouraged to go after what you want. I hope that you learn something and share it with your friends. I hope you find love and light.

Here at The Juicy Pepper, we vow to always put forth our best efforts in cooking, teaching, learning and growing and always to build up small businesses and each other in all that we do. Again, I am so glad that you’re here. Let’s get cooking, shall we?
