I am Julie Queen and I live just outside of Raleigh, North Carolina with my husband and son. I work in healthcare as a Physician Assistant and spend most of my free time trying to keep up with my son’s busy schedule, but what I have come to love is trying to prepare new and tasty meals for my family as often as I possibly can. With picky eaters in my house, limited local specialty food availability, and time constraints as a working parent, just cooking can be frustrating at times, but it is a challenge that I enjoy. At least I can share only recipes deemed delicious by my home critics and hide my many disasters behind closed doors! I hope that having my Dash of Delicious blog will continue to encourage me to work to be more inventive in my cooking and may connect me with others that can make me better at my cooking skills day by day.
