Welcome to Happy Honey Kitchen!

I’m Angela. Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Honey Kitchen started as a creative outlet to share my joy and passion for cooking. HHK is a space for (mostly) Quick, Healthy-ish, Always Delish recipes for home cooks who love flavor. Plus, cocktails for happy hour!

I was born and raised in Dallas, but currently live in Sugar Land (a suburb of Houston) with my husband, JJ, and our fur baby, Donnie. After teaching for 10 years, I realized I had more dreams worth pursuing, so I packed up my classroom and headed home… to cook!

I started cooking as a teenager to help my parents get dinner on the table after work. Soon after, I discovered that I actually loved cooking rather than it just being a chore. The kitchen became my happy place.

I hope to inspire that same creativity and happiness in your kitchen with recipes that fuel your body & mind.

A Little More About Me


My favorite thing to do is go where I’ve never been.

I have a serious case of wanderlust! Some of my hobbies are finding new destinations to add to my travel bucket list and planning future trip itineraries. I’m always planning my next adventure!

  • eating & drinking my way through food, wine, and beer festivals
  • trying new restaurants
  • reading mystery novels
  • moving my body in a workout class, lifting weights, walking Donnie, and riding my bike
  • two-stepping the night away
  • traveling anywhere and everywhere

Meet Donnie, My Co-Worker

Our rescue dog, Donatello (aka Donnie) was named after the ninja turtle, not the sculptor.

He’s the sweetest, but laziest co-worker I’ve ever had. Whenever I’m working, you can find him right next to me snoring up a storm. Hopefully you like dogs because you will see a lot of him around here.
