I write like it's my job - because it is! I have a Master's in English and love words: crossword puzzles, Scrabble games, Wordle, and, of course, good, old-fashioned books.
I'm a writer and editor at OnlyInYourState, and a contributing writer at Cincinnati Magazine. I love the Great Outdoors and am endlessly awestruck by this beautiful country of ours. Coffee keeps me going, yoga keeps me sane, my kids keep me grounded, and my writing keeps me inspired.
Oregon has quite the culinary repertoire. In addition to being at the forefront of the farm-to-table and locavore movements, the Beaver State is behind such tasty treats as tater tots and marionberry pies. Oregon’s greatest culinary claim to fame, however, is everyone’s favorite food-on-a-stick: the corn dog! That’s right, the corn dog was invented in Oregon back in the 1930s, and you can still grab one from the original Pronto Pup in Rockaway Beach.
Have you been to Pronto Pop, home to the original Oregon corn dog? This roadside stand in Rockaway Beach really is a must for all Beaver State foodies!
