About Me

Hi! My name is Lysa Shimkus. I live in the Mid-West of the United States with my husband, who is my guinea pig in the kitchen—he eats anything and everything I cook/bake—and our newborn baby. I am also a teacher-turned-library staff.  When not working, I enjoy watching documentaries, cooking and baking, sewing, reading and writing.

I also like to shop around with my husband, where he digs around for Hot Wheels and time pieces, and I peruse the kitchen and book aisles. My love for cooking food–especially for my husband–and watching documentaries are what motivated me to start EatHistoryNow (EHN).

EHN is my personal food blog. I post recipes past and present, along with my everyday cooking. You can also find EatHistoryNow on YouTube and Facebook.

I hope you enjoy my recipes! Thanks for stopping by!
