Halley: I grew up in Huntsville, AL and went to Mississippi State University for undergrad (Go Dawgs!).  I had a great experience there and after I graduated, spent a year in Salerno, Italy doing an internship with the ministry I was involved with in college, sharing my love of Jesus and food throughout Italy.  It was the best year of my life!  I returned home to Alabama to do my dietetic internship at UAB, graduated in June, and started working at a hospital here in Birmingham, doing outpatient nutritional counseling mixed with some clinical nutrition.  I love my job and I love the extra time I have now without studying, so I am excited to spread the love of oatmeal.

Vasu: I grew up in Baton Rouge, LA and went to Louisiana State University for undergrad (GEAUX TIGERS!). Living in a cajun town with an Indian family, I was able to enjoy and grow up around a wide variety of delicious and spicy food. I then moved to Birmingham, AL for my Master of Public Health degree then continued on to complete a dietetic internship. I currently work in a pediatric hospital in Birmingham and love the work that I do. I look forward to sharing recipes from my childhood and creations of my own.

    Hi there Halley and Vasu!

    My name is Steve Walters and I recently started blogging at http://www.eatingbangkok.com, which is currently being updated with recipes, but in the next few months will be my vehicle for covering the food and restaurant scene in Bangkok Thailand.

    I am now in the process of meeting as many food bloggers as I can and I found your site https://oatmealmountain.wordpress.com recently and was pretty impressed. I’ve added your site to my Foodie Blogs list here: http://www.eatingbangkok.com/foodie-blogs/ and would also like to add you to my blogroll.

    If you could add my site to your blogroll and write back to let me know it has been added I will add you to mine as well and the exchange would be greatly appreciated!

    As you might imagine I am very excited to get moved to Bangkok and get started on covering the food scene there as I feel it is an area that isn’t well covered by English speaking bloggers. I plan on adding loads of great reviews, pictures and even video and will be holding contests as well. It should be fun, entertaining and informative for everyone that visits.

    Thank you so much in advance for adding me to your blogroll and I look forward to reading your posts (I’ve subscribed!) and maybe even featuring some of your own posts as I do plan on a weekly roundup of Thai themed recipes and posts from other food bloggers.

    Warm regards,

    P.S. If you are on Twitter I would love to have you as a follower and I follow back:
