A Bit About Myself



I’m Becky Ann, 23 years old and from Australia. I love to cook, take photos and make stupid jokes. I originally intended to spend my life in a lab working with infectious disease and spent the first 3 years of my Post-High school Life studying Microbiology at University. When push came to shove and I found myself evaluating Post Grad programs I came to the scary realisation that I didn’t want to spend my life around swabs and centrifuges. I wanted to do something creative. Something less routine and entirely different than what I originally planned. After spending a year tending to lab rats and doing routine lab work I decided to take the scary leap into Graphic and Web Design. So here I am at 23, studying (again) and working Full Time in retail. My life is busy and often stressful but I am loving every minute of it. This blog is something I started in July, 2012 and is my way of sharing my ideas, inspiration and the skills and lessons I have learnt. I hope you enjoy reading my blog as much as I do writing it. Curious about something or  have a request? Why not ask me directly?

    I’ve recently switched my food blog over to be self-hosted which I hope will make it more user-friendly in the future. As a result, if you were following Can’t Stay Out of the Kitchen via email, WordPress, or using RSS feeds through Google Reader or some other way, you are no longer subscribed. If you wish to continue receiving future posts from my blog you will need to re-subscribe. Sorry for the inconvenience, Teresa.
