Who is Ting?!
Hi, I’m so glad you found my website! Thank you for joining me in my journey to bring all of my favorite things to you. My name is Lexi, also known as Ting.
I live in a small town just north of Boulder, Colorado. I moved to Colorado in 2013 from Southern California with no idea what I wanted to do. But, I always found myself creating in the kitchen. Three years later, I graduated from a small culinary school in Denver and then spent a month traveling and studying in Italy, where I graduated from a program at the Barilla Academy. Yes, just like the pasta!
This is where my passion took off. I was mesmerized by the rich history of food, herbs and traditions specific to regions around the world. I recognized from a young age and from my studies that this is what brought people together. And, I love that aspect of cooking. I felt a burning desire to share my passion with others and that’s when I decided to make an Instagram dedicated to my creations in my kitchen! When I wasn’t cooking at home or growing produce on my balcony, I was working within the food industry. From a prep cook to an assistant manager to a farm hand and everything in between, I’ve acquired skills and knowledge that have guided me to where I am today.
My goal is to inspire and bring others together through my journey. I am just scratching the surface and am super excited that you’re here with me! Together, we will learn my recipes, create natural products, learn how to build a backyard food forest, and eventually a homestead to create a more sustainable, abundant lifestyle for myself, my family and for you. Thank you for all of your love and support so far! Let’s do this THING! Welcome - to Ting’s Things!
