Tanya Harris is mom, wife, attorney, recipe groupie, photographer, and eater of all the beautiful food she posts to her food blog, My Forking Life.
Tanya Harris is an attorney who started her food blog, My Forking Life, as a hobby in 2016. Her goal is to provide her readers with quick and easy meals that are full of flavor. She wants everyone, even busy people, to be able to cook more often at home.
Tanya posts a lot of gadget recipes, pressure cooker and air fryer recipes, because these have helped her get dinner on the table quickly. She has increased her blog traffic to over 100,000 page views in just a few months by providing her readers with content they need and enjoy.
In her (limited!) free time, Tanya enjoys watching old episodes of Julia Child and Jacques Pepin.
