Hello! My name is Niki. Welcome to Clean Plate Clb! I am so happy you are here!! I grew up a picky picky kid only to turn into a slightly less picky adult. I mostly survived on a diet of chicken fingers, buttered noodles, and hot dogs until I was in college at Penn State. It was there that I discovered my passion for cooking. I watched endless hours of the Food Network. I tested recipes from all different types of cuisines, cookbooks, and blogs. I started to discover everyday normal foods which I had never even bothered to try; more importantly, I discovered I actually liked them.
For me, food has never been a straightforward influence. As someone who has struggled with weight her entire life and used food to cope during difficult times, food has had a negative influence at times. But there are other moments in which food provided a foundation for some of my most memorable and enjoyable. I started Clean Plate Clb as an avenue to share my passion for cooking, food, and photography; to share how these factors have influenced my life and hopefully provide inspiration to everyone out there that we are not alone in our experiences with food.

What’s in a Name?
You are probably wondering how I picked the name Clean Plate Clb. My husband, Zac, and I fell in love over food. Whether it was exploring new recipes in our kitchen or trying out new restaurants, we both share a thrill for eating. When Zac would finish a dish he loved, he would hold up his plate and proudly state that he was a high ranking member of the Clean Plate Clb. With that, I knew I had a great name for my blog.
I invite you to jump in with me on my culinary adventures!
