About Me

Are you wondering who I am? Well hi, I’m Nicole. Welcome to my little corner of the web, I’m so glad you decided to stop by. I am the writer behind this blog.

I have been blogging since October 2009, but this blog has only been up and running since late last summer. My original blog took a turn I really wasn’t sure if I wanted it to take or not, so I decided to start this one and try and go a different route.

I graduated in May 2005 with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Agriculture Education and in May 2016 with a Master’s of Arts degree in Technical/Professional Writing.

I love to cook. I taught myself how to cook by reading recipes along with the help of both my grandmother’s. My passion for cooking continued on after I graduated with my bachelor’s and I signed up to take a culinary class at a local community college. That fell through though (their issue, not ours) sadly so I went on to take cake decorating classes. From there I have stemmed my passion into cooking, baking, and even cookie decorating. They always say you need to learn something new every day.

Grab a cup of coffee or your beverage of choice, sit back, and enjoy this little blog; hopefully you even get a giggle or two even if it is at my expense. Don’t worry, I’m probably laughing too. Welcome to Paved Dirt Roads!
