Welcome to PudgeFactor! I’m Chula, professor by day and foodie by night. I’m the blogger and award-winning photographer behind PudgeFactor!
As you peruse PudgeFactor, you will find amazing, well-tested recipes from my years of experience. These recipes run the gamut from simple to sophisticated and everything in between. You’ll also find process photos from start to finish, along with tips and tricks that I’ve learned through the years.
PudgeFactor began over 20 years ago as a print cookbook of my recipes which I gave family members for Christmas. Since then it evolved into digital copies of my new and improved recipes, and finally into my blog in 2012.
You may think that PudgeFactor is an odd name for cooking blog. However, the word “pudge” has been used for sometime around our house to indicate that the person is stuffed from incredible food.
In addition to sharing my vast experience in PudgeFactor, I’ve also been a guest columnist for the TLC Life section of the Tallahassee Democrat-USA Today Network-Florida.
My recipes have also been featured on the following websites:
- Tallahassee.com Community Blogs
- Athens Voice
- InstantPot Recipes & Info
I hope that you enjoy my recipes as much as I do!
