"You better cut that pizza into four pieces, I'm not hungry enough to eat six!" -Yogi Berra
My name is Nancy Mock, and I'm a food writer, recipe developer, food photographer - and food fanatic. I'm a native Vermonter living in the Burlington, VT area.
Eagerly tasting all the eats that come out of my kitchen are my husband, son, and my daughter and her boyfriend from their home in New Hampshire. Not only are they eager taste-testers, we love to travel together to find tasty eats on the road: locally, around New England, and any exotic locales we may find ourselves in!
Hungry Enough To Eat Six began as a blog, where I could connect with other like-minded folks to geek out about all things food. Now it's where I share my recipes: meals, desserts, and drinks that are full of flavor, casual (I'm definitely not a perfectionist), family-friendly, and whenever possible taking advantage of seasonal produce, spices, and flavors.
When I found that Yogi Berra joke I knew that "Hungry Enough To Eat Six" would be the perfect name for my website. It's basically how I feel all the time: hungry for new recipes, new flavor combinations, and new techniques.
And hungry for Delectable Destinations: my writing about hitting the road to see what folks are doing in bakeries, restaurants, farm stands, food trucks, and beyond!
In addition to my writing here, I am also a Freelance Writer for Taste of Home.com, contributing recipes and articles on regional eats, baking, food nostalgia, gardening, and more. I appear regularly on the Fox Local 44/Local 22 "Morning Brew", sharing recipes and dishes to fit the season. I've also been a Field Editor for Taste Of Home Magazine since 2013.
When I'm not doing all of that I work in an elementary school, working 1-1 to support kids' learning in the classroom... and telling jokes that only seven-year-olds find funny.

In my down time
When I get out of the kitchen for a spell, I love watching funny stuff: The Office (British and American), Doctor Who, Rifftrax (their riff on Birdemic is pure genius), and Schitt's Creek. Marathon sessions Marvel movies are common here (Captain America is my fave, but Guardians of the Galaxy is a close second!) I also love the The Chef Show, Great British Baking Show and just about everything that Mary Berry does.
My reading is almost always cookbooks! Samin Nosrat, Tamar Adler, and Darina Allen are recent reads. I also love and reread too often Agatha Christie novels, Julia Child's My Life In France, and the perpetual angst of Adrian Mole in the books by Sue Townsend.
