About Me

Hi! My name is Rachel and I’m your average “dressed to dish” girl on a budget. Whether I’m getting dressed for a night on the town or in the kitchen experimenting with new ingredients, it’s always an adventure. With two younger sisters, I grew up in a household “borrowing” clothes, sharing home-made sweet treats, and playing dress-up. Now in my 20’s, my fashion sense has definitely improved from my earlier years. No kidding, I’m surprised I was not featured on the hit show, “What Not To Wear” when I was in High School. And while I’m not a chef in the kitchen,  I could eat, cook, & bake until the cows came home. I’m just as happy shopping for food as I am shopping for clothes.

So in the fall of 2010 I made my mark on the Blog World and created Dressed to Dish. Little did I know at the time, that this tiny blog would eventually inspire me to dress, cook, and document my life on a daily basis. Through this experience, I have gained a new outlook on living a happy & healthy “dressed to dish” lifestyle.

I’m currently engaged to a guy who makes me laugh til I cry, reminding me that he will always love me – even if I do eat most of the cake before it hits the oven.

After an incredible 8 month journey in Thailand, my fiance and I are now back in the States! While we gear up for our 2012 October wedding, we are back in the hustle & bustle of life in good ole’ Virginia.

As for life in Thailand? Let me just tell you – my love for fashion and food was at an all time high. The gorgeous costumes, delicious food, and bargain prices had me sold.

And as for my crazy lovable family? We’re in it for the long haul, that is unless there’s one roll left in the bread basket.
