About Me

Hey, I’m Yvette! I’m a bacon loving, goat cheese craving, margarita drinking foodie who’s obsessed with tacos. Like, really obsessed. My formal culinary training has come in the form of watching my grandma make delicious meals in the kitchen and Googling recipes. Aside from kitchen-related things, I love to lose myself in horror flicks, escape with bubbly drinks and girlfriends, and shop for fabulous shoes. Watching football and playing tennis brings out the insanely competitive sides of both my husband and I, but we do it anyway.

My husband Bobby and I reside in sunny Long Beach, California with our daughter Avery and adorable, pain-in-the-butt dogs, Molly and Mia. We will soon meet Baby Girl #2 in March 2018!

I created this blog because I love trying new, exciting recipes, taking pretty photos, and generally making a disaster in the kitchen. My best creations often result from many lessons in “what not to do,” and I’m here to share the good, the bad, and the ugly with you! Hopefully you will learn a little something from my mistakes and find recipes, tips, and tricks that will help you succeed.

Recently, my blog has evolved from food to DIY crafts, lifestyle and event inspiration. Who doesn’t love a fabulous, well-decorated party or inspiration photos?!?!?!

I read and appreciate every comment that I receive, so please, don’t hold back! You can also email me at Yvette [at} mycrownedcreations [dot] com. If you’re a social media lover like I am, you can like Crowned Creations on Facebook HERE or follow me on Instagram HERE.

One last little tidbit – between a full-time job, chasing a toddler and growing a small human, there will be times that I need to take a week or two off from blogging. Don’t fear, though, I will always be back!

Though you won’t get the last 10 minutes of your life back, I hope you enjoyed learning a few things about me. I’m super excited to share my kitchen creations with you.
