my name is Amy

I’m the author, photographer, and recipe developer here at Chew Out Loud.

I’m a huge dog-lover, avid runner, and God’s girl. I’m proud mama of three very busy boys. My world is loud and gloriously wild, as our home is often the space where friends gather.

Sometimes, we travel the world and taste all the food. Always, my favorite space to return to is my kitchen.

5 Fun Facts

  1. This site is called Chew Out Loud because great food is best when talked about, laughed over, and shared with friends – we don’t actually chew out loud 😃
  2. I created the ebook, Slow Cooker Dinners, for busy moms who want delicious meals where they can set it and forget it. 🥘
  3. I somehow squeezed into the Guinness Book of World Records for completing all the World Marathon Majors in Tokyo, 2023. 🏃🏻‍♀️
  4. I burn myself every time I bake. Every. Single. Time. 😩
  5. When you visit us here, you’re helping put food on the table for hungry families around the world and providing resources for homeless families locally. Together, we’re making a significant impact. ❤️

    This one easily handles 6 slices of toast, bakes a 12-inch pizza, and roasts a 4lb chicken.

  • instant pot

    We love our 8-qt for cooking for family, friends, and weekly meal prep.

  • silicone baking mat

    This is a must-have for anyone who loves to bake cookies. Non-stick, reusable, easy to clean.
