Sweet and Savory Eats
Hi there! My name is Ally Billhorn and I’m a wife, mama, daughter, sister, and friend. I grew up in small-town Toledo, Iowa and have stayed in Iowa my whole life, hopping around here and there. For the last 11 years, my family has settled in Wilton.
I graduated from college with an Electronic Media and Journalism degree. After working for large companies and small, I then went on to have three babies in five years, thus turning myself into a stay-at-home-working-mom. I started my food blog, Ally’s Sweet & Savory Eats when my youngest was just 3 months old, back in 2009. Much to my surprise it brought out my love of writing and cooking and connecting with my readers. It is now a major part of my life, keeping me on my toes with major national brands, foods, and trends.
I’m also in love with great television, coffee with heavy cream, long walks, all forms of Italian food, craft beers, podcasts, and my friends. I try to read a few books a month and I’ve found that goes much quicker if I’ve planted my butt on a deck chair by a lake. The Iowa Hawkeyes reign supreme and when bored or stressed you’ll find me in the kitchen whipping up a batch of my famous banana bread.
Kalona Supernatural products hold a dear place in my heart. I’ve seen their operations with my own eyes and I cannot think of a better product to feed my family. Their chocolate milk is our favorite! Please connect with me on all my social channels – I actually respond!
