Hi, I’m Si!
I was born in Okinawa, Japan. My mom is Japanese and my dad from the U.S. I have been married to my best friend, Grant for 40 years and have four kids- two girls and two boys, a daughter-in -law, two sons-in-law and 8 beautiful grand babies! When I started this blog in 2008, we lived in Bountiful, Utah.
I learned to love cooking while I was going to Dixie College in the early 80’s. I took a bread and pie making class from a sweet lady, Mrs. Barton. She taught us how to make bread, rolls,cinnamon rolls, donuts and my favorite- PIE. I was hooked! I loved that you could start out with flour, sugar, fruit, and an hour or so later end up with something that was beautiful, smelled wonderful and tasted so good!
A Bountiful Kitchen started as a hobby, and blossomed into a full time business that keeps me busier than ever! I also teach classes at Orson Gygi in Salt Lake City, make regular appearances on KSL Studio5 and wrote a cookbook in 2022.
My greatest joy comes while spending time with people I love and making meals that create memories. So glad you are here! If you have a question about a recipe, leave a comment on the recipe or email me at [email protected]
Hope to see you in the kitchen soon!
