Melisa Smith

 Hello! Thanks for stopping by. My name is Melisa Smith. I am a Stained Glass Artist, former Library Supervisor, Children's Program Director and  a self proclaimed chef in my own home. Having spent several years working as a server and bartender during my college years in the Seattle area helped me out in the self proclaimed chef arena of my life. I have no formal training in cooking or photography but I hope you will enjoy the fun things I cook up and the adventures I am lucky enough to experience.

How you can support my work:
You can help support my website by sharing posts that you love with friends and family! This will help to reach a wider audience who may enjoy the content I'm creating. I'm also available for recipe development, reviews and photography should you be needing any of these services. Thank you so much for your support!

 The Glass Pantry is sure to be stocked full of interesting adventures in bread baking, sourdough, cheese making, smoked meats, gardening, motorcycle rides and other travel adventures that I hope you will enjoy.



Success! Message received.
