thefreckledcook is in the house


Actually, thefreckledcook is in the blog world!  After dreaming about the posts I would write and practicing taking pictures of my food, I have finally decided to start a blog.  I’m excited to start posting my kitchen quests, as well as other fun happenings in my freckled life!

The pooch & I

My name is Leslie and I am a 27-year-old event manager that loves to cook, run and just about anything outdoors.  I have an awesome family, fun friends, a cute boyfriend, Jeff, and an energetic dog, Freddie Mercury.  My interest in cooking started a few years ago when I wanted to eat at home more often to save money, and save calories.  Over the last year and a half that interest has grown into a love!  I really enjoy trying new recipes and using friends and family as guinea pigs.  I like to put my own spin on recipes I come across, whether that means altering ingredients to make something a bit healthier, or adding some spices to heat a dish up. 

The boyfriend & I ❤

I started running a little over a year ago when I decided to run a 1/2 marathon with a good friend.  We ran our first 1/2 together in February 2011 at the Huntington Beach Surf City, and I loved it!  I took a hiatus to focus on some strength training, but recently became re-dedicated to running.  I’m hoping to run my first full marathon in 2012 and am looking forward to the training.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy reading about my attempts at culinary prowess, my journey to meet my health and running goals, and my adventures with Freddie!
