About Full of Zest

Who I am:

Hi there! I’m Nicole and I am so happy you have made your way into the world of Full of Zest.

I currently live in Maryland (although always dreaming of moving to the mountains somewhere) with my husband and 2 cat children.

If I’m not in the kitchen, you will most likely find me outside. I thrive off of good weather and being outdoors in nature. I’m also very very much a “bird nerd” who will stop dead in her tracks hiking, bike riding, or just walking down the street to try and find the bird I just heard hiding in a tree somewhere. Most of the time I never find it, but if I do, it’s going to be a good day.

I am a self taught, home cook who a few years ago didn’t know much about the kitchen. Growing up in a home full of great cooks, I was spoiled with delicious meals every day where I didn’t have to lift a finger. I regret not watching my grandma cook more and taking notes on everything she made, but I think she magically put a little bit of her magic in my blood.

About Full of Zest:

I have an undying love and obsession for lemons and citrus flavors, which is the driving force behind this idea and the name Full of Zest.

Full of Zest was created as my way of sharing my love for food. There’s a lot of blogs and food publishing companies out there but I hope you somehow find a home here at citrus central. Here you will find easy, delicious, and bright recipes that anyone can make! I specialize in citrus dishes and baked goods so you too can enjoy the magic flavors of these fruits!

I am always down to chat about food, adventure, and anything else, so please don’t be a stranger! If you have any requests, comments, or concerns, please contact me.

Happy cooking 🙂

Nicole
