Welcome to Florida Gal Eats!
I’m excited to share my favorite recipes from my kitchen – simple, flavorful, and fresh! 🙂
Born and raised in Northeast Ohio, I have lived in Orlando, FL for almost 20 years and have come to enjoy living where I do not have to fight snow, sleet, and ice during the winter months!
I absolutely love going to the ocean (Atlantic side!), learning about Florida history and visiting the awesome state parks, and spending time at the Orlando area attractions. (I am a former Walt Disney World cast member.) I also enjoy trying out new restaurants as there is no shortage of places to eat in the “Vacation Capital of the World.”
I have always had a love affair with food. Growing up, we had an annual bounty from my father’s abundant Northeast Ohio garden and this allowed me to appreciate vegetables in their pure, unadulterated, natural state.
I grew up picking radishes right out of the ground – smelling the fresh earth still clinging to the vegetables before I rinsed them off at the simple spigot attached to the garage.
I would eat them right then and there – you could not get more fresh than that! I credit his garden for developing my fondness for all things fresh!
Thanks for stopping by!
