Hello! My name is Michelle and I write this blog. 

Pancake Drama is an honest and colorful look at life through the context of food. 

Everybody needs to eat; we all have that in common. My aim is to capture the drama—joy, frustration, excitement, happiness—food brings to our lives. In this blog I share recipes, adventures, discoveries, stories, and anything else I find fun and exciting. I hope that you find something that inspires you.

I started Pancake Drama in February 2013 after completing a Master’s program in geology. After graduating I wanted to do something fun. I love food, photography, and journaling so I started this blog.
