Abby Abnormal started as a way to update family and friends while I went on a five month volunteer trip through Europe and Asia. I left my home and my job with just a 20 pound backpack, an ugly pair of “comfortable travel shoes”, and a hunger to see parts of the world I had only dreamed of. I realized that although this started as something for others, it quickly became something for myself. After I got back, I was still going places and still loved to write, so Abby Abnormal stays alive and continues to explore new places and taste new flavors.
This blog represents the part of me that I often find myself unable to express in person, because, well, I talk too fast, care too much, and mostly have my head in the clouds.
Thanks for reading!
My interest in blogging recipes comes from my background in culinary arts and my love for cooking and mostly eating all the foods.
My first dream was to be a food critic, like Ruth Reichil status. I think eventually I’ll add a restaurant reviews section to this blog, but, baby steps.
The name is actually a reference to Young Frankenstein (1974), when Igor informs Dr. Frankenstein that he gave him the brain of Abby Normal and he freaks out because he put an abnormal brain into a gorilla…basically, it’s a classic.
