Chef Bec Heflin’s It’s Yummi!
I’m a formally trained culinary professional residing in northeastern Wisconsin. I’m here to be your helping hands in the kitchen, providing easy, everyday recipes and cooking tips to home cooks of all experience levels!
As a trained chef, I primarily cook from scratch, but I’m a believer in saving time whenever possible, so you’ll see me use short cut recipes and convenience products from time to time to help you save time on those crazy busy days that we all have!
I believe that everyone deserves to eat nutritiously balanced meals, even those on a tight budget. I provide nutritious, healthy recipes with a budget in mind, and the occasional sweet treats and desserts, because a little indulgence (in moderation!) is a good thing!
Many of my recipes use fresh, unprocessed ingredients, with organics appearing when it’s cost-effective, or when I have evidence that it’s really important. And you can be sure that I’ll share that evidence with you!
I want to help you create nutritiously balanced food using a common sense approach because I have a passion for helping my readers turn ordinary ingredients into extraordinary meals!
I have a strong faith in God, a deep love for my husband, my 2 children, my “fur babies”, and pride in America.
Foods you’ll never see me turn down: A perfectly roasted ear of sweet corn, Wisconsin cheese, bratwurst, a crisp-cooked slice of bacon, and any shellfish.. Oh, and a Dairy Queen Dilly Bar!
Dreams and Wishes: A chance to cook with Ina Garten or Chef Rocco Dispirito, a traveling concessions truck, and season tickets for the Green Bay Packers games!
To keep up to date with my latest recipes, be sure to subscribe to my newsletter. I won’t inundate you with emails, as I usually post 1 new recipe a week.
