Have you ever wondered how The Front Porch Gourmet came to life? Or have you wondered about how to start your own blog?

I had the amazing opportunity to join Eric Holtzclaw on the Eric Holtzclaw Show to discuss just that. Eric is the master of hosts and was fantastic to work with making the interview lighthearted yet informative and an all-around great experience. To hear our interview click here!


“Today on The Eric Holtzclaw Show, Eric had the pleasure of hosting Chef Melissa, Pelkey-Hass. Melissa, Owner of The Front Porch Gourmet and Chef M, discussed her love for food, recipes, and comfort. She explained how she began her career as a graphic designer and never thought cooking would be her path. Melissa also dished on her love for blogging, creating recipes, and teaching cooking classes.”

The show airs weekday mornings, 11am-12pm on “The Biz” 1190 AM.


Eric V. Holtzclaw is a serial entrepreneur with 20+ years of experience and a founding member of multiple successful start-up companies, including one of the first profitable Internet enterprises and a company that appeared on the Inc. 5000 list three years in a row.

If you get a chance to listen, I would love your feedback and I’d be happy to answer any further questions you may have.

Always Remember…
