The "About Us" section is always my favorite part of a website. I like to find out more about the product and also about the company, its people, what makes them tick, who they are, and how they came to do what they're doing. So hopefully if you're like me, this section gives you the info you're looking for. Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate your interest in BIG RED HOUSE and me :-)
Here's my story: After 6 1/2 years of owning a soup company I decided, rather suddenly, that it was time to take a different path. I was a stickler for high-quality ingredients and putting out a top notch product that I was proud to say was mine. I had a lot of passion for my soups, and while it wasn't always smooth sailing, I was content with where I took BIG RED HOUSE Soup. Ultimately, I came to the conclusion that it was not possible to put out the quality product I wanted to and actually make money. It was a sad reality to face after working so hard for so long. But when I finally came to that fork in the road, it was clear which direction I needed to go. After I decided to close up shop, I put my story and all my recipes into the BIG RED HOUSE Soup cookbook which is available HERE at Amazon.
In my desire to find something else to put my passion into, I decided to stick with my love of high-quality items and food. I have clocked many hours in the kitchen. There have been many occasions where I have wondered "why do my hands feel like they are burning despite the fact that I'm wearing a pair of oven mitts?" or "why is my food turning on the skewer every time I try to flip it?". I started paying closer attention to how I could fix these flaws with the many tools I use in the kitchen and began manufacturing my own line of "fixed" kitchen items. With every item I sell, there has been a moment where I questioned why a manufacturer would make an obviously-flawed product? If you ever have that question about any of our products or any kitchen product please reach out to us in the "say hi" section of the website!
Now, a little bit about me: I'm still living here in the "BIG RED HOUSE". I have an incredibly supportive husband (but he's annoying sometimes too), 3 amazing teenagers (How many people can say such a thing? I'm appreciating every moment of this as I think it could all change tomorrow!), a funny and slightly crazy dachshund and 2 cats. I love to cook and entertain and you should check out the "recipe" section to the website. Look for another cookbook to come out as soon as I can get my act together.
I also love to teach people to cook and it makes me so happy when you make one of my recipes, it works, and you love it! Please, let me know about your successes...and your failures! I will absolutely help in any way I can!
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you found all the information you were looking for. Again, do not hesitate to reach out with any comments or questions!
