I’m Anna. Nice to meet you.
Born and raised in New Jersey, in 2007 I moved just over the border to Pennsylvania, the Lehigh Valley area, with my parents. I moved back to New Jersey recently with my better half, Dave, who I met in our sophomore year of college and have been dating since 2017. We live in an old farmhouse built circa 1917 and recently renovated.
After managing a personal blog since 2002 and maintaining blogs and websites for various companies I’ve worked for over the years in my roles in marketing, I created From Anna’s Kitchen in June 2016 as a resource for food lovers everywhere.
I’m passionate about cooking, baking, preserving, brewing—any and all food-related things—and enjoy sharing my recipes, tips, and experiences of the same with my friends, family, and you!
When I’m not in the kitchen
I’m an avid knitter and crocheter (are you? If so, friend me on Ravelry!). I also enjoy shopping, traveling, and going to concerts and events.
I love animals and sharing pictures of our pets: Reggie, a black and white tuxedo boy that we found Thanksgiving 2019 on the farm; Chip (boy) and Charli (girl), twin orange kitties who joined the family in 2018; and a fluffy tabby cat, Squeaker, who we think is part Persian and is as noisy as her name would imply.
Feel free to reach out with questions, comments, or requests any time!
