About

Welcome to Food Marriage and thank you SO much for visiting!!

About the Author/Chef:

My name is BA Haggerty. I live in the suburbs of Philadelphia and met the love of my life, Patrick, on a beautiful spring day in 2005 while in college at West Chester University of Pennsylvania. I was “the girl next door,” literally…we were next door neighbors! From the moment we met, there was an instant connection and we knew it was something special. We got married on May 21, 2011. Check out our wedding highlight video by clicking here.

About Food Marriage Wedding Picture 1

I grew up with a love of writing, but never pursued a career in that area. I graduated from college with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management and a double minor in Spanish and International Business. I got into recruiting right out of college and am currently a corporate recruiter, which has nothing to do with writing OR food, but I love my job! I get to help people find their dream job every day, which is a wonderful thing to be able to do!

I started Food Marriage in October 2011 because I love to write and because I love food! (I also needed a new hobby after getting married. While engaged, all my free time went to wedding planning…and in the months following, I found myself with a lot of extra time on my hands!)

That extra time on my hands didn’t last forever though! We welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world in January 2015. We are so blessed to have her in our lives and now we cannot imagine our lives without her! I always knew that Food Marriage would evolve with my life and now I can add Mommy Blogging to my repertoire! I look forward to continuing to share my experiences about being married, having fun, loving life, and loving food!

About the Blog:

The Food Marriage Blog is based in the Greater Philadelphia area.  It is about keeping the romance in marriage alive by carving out time for date nights (and discovering great restaurants along the way). It is about cultivating friendships and getting together to share stories, fabulous appetizers, and delectable desserts. It is about the trials and tribulations of having a hectic work schedule and still finding time to whip up a wholesome meal at the end of the day.

The Food Marriage Blog is about throwing memorable parties and events. It is about sharing tips, advice, and gift ideas. It is about being the best mom I can be!!  And, of course, the Food Marriage Blog would not be complete without sharing recipes!!

I am looking forward to many new and exciting culinary adventures on Food Marriage!
