Hey there! I’m Dena!
Welcome to Host by the Coast. I hope to bring fun back into vegetarian cooking and to spread some sunshine from a coastal lifestyle.
I’m so happy and grateful to give inspiration to explore new adventures, share some of my favorite recipes and help give you confidence to step into your vegetarian-side.
To share a little bit about myself, I am a mother of 3, well, 4 if you include my rotten little doggie. Originally from Ohio, I now live on the Florida coast and love being on the water.. From taking snacks to the beach, to spending time with family on the boat or paddle boards, I am always trying to come up with new fun food ideas that the whole crew will enjoy.
It’s not always easy being a vegetarian with a carnivorous family, lol! My husband, being the biggest carnivore of all, is also the biggest fan of my vegetarian cooking! Knowing I can pass the test with him, gives me the courage to swim in the tides of the world of food blogging.
Party planning and home decor are also passions of mine. I admire all who come up with life hacks and hope to explore new tips and tricks throughout my blogging journey. I have created Host by the Coast to inspire and provide a resource to assist with discovering new ways to enjoy life through food, hosting parties and living your best life. Even if you’re not on the coast, you can still have a taste of paradise.
