Behind the recipes

Hi, I’m Tonya

A self-trained cook who loves to experiment in the kitchen. I am the photographer and writer for The Midwest Kitchen Blog. I love a good book and a giant cup of tea! When I’m not in the kitchen, I’m a wildlife and landscape artist who is always covered in paint or graphite!

I was born in the Midwest and raised in the Lone Star State, the best state, of course! I founded The Midwest Kitchen Blog shortly after moving back to the Midwest. This blog came out of my desire to share all of the comforting recipes that my family loves and continues to enjoy.
