Welcome to Spill the Beans! A (mostly) food blog written by Erin, a twenty-something, finally-done-with-grad-school audiologist. I’ve lived in Baltimore for the better part of 10 years, and when I’m not being a traveling saleswoman you can typically find me cooking, teaching Body Pump, or attending someone else’s wedding.


While I do have a real job now, I still tend to be pretty frugal. I’ll attempt to pass on what little wisdom I have about cooking on a budget with no culinary training whatsoever. Generally I choose compulsive exercise or compulsive baking over doing cool things and being social, but I’ll try my best to make this interesting.

    Great job ladies! Thoroughly enjoyed the writing, wit and recipes.

  2. I’m convinced when Erin leaves for grad school this week, I will miraculously drop 10 pounds. However, we will miss her immensely.

  3. I feel comforted by your blog? Weird? Perhaps, but either way I enoyed reading and will continue to follow! Sheila, I’m glad to see your still gettin wild on Thursday nights (I think thursday was the mojitos? can’t remember) and this just brings the distance between us a little closer and I will hold my end of the bargain up by baking or eating my mozz sticks

    My mom just introduced me to this blog (She is friends with your parents), and I LOVE the recipes you guys have put in here. I know that me and my boyfriend are always up for trying new things, we’re trying to be a bit healthier and eat at home, and I’ve already picked out about 15 things I want to try and make. Keep up the good work. Your blog is informative, and also really funny!

    1. Aw thanks! I’m glad you’re enjoying it. I got to see your parents at the lake over the summer which was nice- it’s been years! Send me any suggestions for recipes you would like to see, and good luck with in the kitchen 🙂

    Love your style and recipes. How about some creative uses for peas and dry beans(navy, black, red, pink, and of course, pintos), lentils and garbonzos(chick peas). These are all very healthy pulse grains and good for you (and your heart) but they need your creative touch!!! Farmers in the Dakotas where I live grow thousands of acres but few enjoy them so go for it. Check out NorthernPulseGrowers.com for their info on uses of these legume grains. Life is good.
    All the best.
    Vern Anderson,

    1. Glad you’re enjoying the blog! I have quite a few recipes with lentils, black beans, and chickpeas, but I’ll see what other ideas I can come up with!

  8. I just found your blog (through pinning something on pinterest) and I love your recipes, style of writing, and flair for life. You could be the next Pioneer Woman? ha ha. Thanks for sharing your recipes and zest for life. I am trying to be healthier and found several fun recipes to enjoy. Thanks again for your time spent on this fun blog.

    1. Thank you so much! I’m glad you enjoy it. I will try to keep up with the posts 🙂
