Hi there, I’m Nancy!

I am so happy that you found your way here. Whispered Inspirations was created to help the everyday person. Be it travelers, foodies, crafters, parents, and non-parents too.

On these pages, we hope you can find inspiration and spark your creativity.

One of my biggest passions has always been cooking and baking. I gravitate towards quick and easy meals that bring people together.

After all, the best memories are made in the kitchen or around the dining room table, right?

So the recipes shared here are easy, delicious, and made to be whipped up in a jiffy!

It’s one of the reasons why I wrote the “How-To Cookbook for Kids,” since I believe kids can be passionate about cooking too.

We travel as often as possible and have an insatiable case of wanderlust. The love of food and the experience of culture goes hand in hand with travel.

If this sounds like you too, you are in the right place.

You’ll find delicious recipes, amazing travel destinations, fun craftstips to make life easier, and ways to make the most of your favourite living spaces.

About Me:

Hello there, if you missed it, I’m Nancy. The writer, travel junkie, and photographer behind this site. I am a journalist who worked in the space of scriptwriting in the early years before the days of social media.

Then for 8 years, and in between, I worked as a part of a nursing health care team in a long-term care facility. Now, over a decade later, I have the privilege to do all the writing, recipe development, and photography for this site full-time. To have the chance to share it all with you every single day is a true pleasure.

When I am not creating and editing content on here, you can find me on the Huffington Post, TODAY Parenting, and other publications.

Now, I’ve added another hat—cookbook author. I’m so excited to continue writing more cookbooks.

I live in border city Windsor, Ontario (Rose City), and Detroit, Michigan.

I’m enchanted with books, candles, anything rustic or shabby chic, and PRETTY, of course. Vintage is something I cherish, so you’ll often find me antiquing to find my next prop or home decor.

Random Fact About Me: If you offer me the spiciest chicken wings, I will not refuse. It’s my kryptonite! Throw in a Coke Zero and I’m a happy girl.

Meet Gabby:

Feisty, intelligent, and witty. She is patient, generous, caring, and the kindest spirit you will ever meet.

Gabby tests out fun products, food, clothes, and more. She was Sunwing’s first Kidcationer and has been featured on national TV, print, and online.

You can see her giving travel tips on CTV and sharing family resort packing travel tips on Global TV. Gabs was featured in the Toronto Star on a full-page advertisement for Sunwing and online at Our Windsor.

Like us, she has the wanderlust bug and I can’t wait to see what else she will do in the future.

Meet Darasak:

This is my dear husband Darasak. He is my biggest pillar of support and my best friend.

Darasak provides the occasional review on products and services for mentravelDisneygadgets, and much more! 

You’ll find him brandishing a GoPro wherever we go. He assists in our photo and video shoots. He is an ace in the kitchen and we often whip up recipes together.

When he isn’t helping here, you can find him sharing his love of food, travel, and cars. Check out his Insta, here. He is heading the Men’s Lifestyle section and will be contributing more content geared towards men and dads.

Meet Mimi:

Mimi is the epitome of a tinkerer. Always drawing, creating, painting and building something out of nothing.

She has an amazing imagination and I hope she never loses that!

Above all, Mimi truly has a kind heart. It is one of the things that I love the most about her. She is caring and always willing to lend a helping hand.

You’ll notice her across most of our channels.

Mimi will be creating more videos and continue to provide a kid’s point of view for Whispered Inspirations.
