Hi, I’m Sharon Rhodes, the creator behind The Honour System. If you want to contact me, please check out my contact page.

I’m thrilled you found me! Originally from Victoria, BC, I now live in picturesque Vancouver, Canada.

Before settling down in this bustling metropolis, we lived in quaint Burlington, Ontario, just west of Toronto, Canada, and the stunning city of Prague in Czechia, Europe.

Along the way, I have worked in some of the top international restaurants and hotels, such as The Inn at Laurel Point, Spencer’s at the Waterfront, Boulevard Kitchen, and the Westin Bayshore.

Exposure to world-class dining rooms, kitchens, and renowned chefs taught me the importance of attention to detail, organization, and efficiency. I gained valuable skills and experience that shaped my life.

This background has given me a deep understanding of cuisine, food preparation techniques, and flavor profiles.

My forte is creating real food recipes and adapting comfort food classics with a healthier spin.

My inspiration comes from my Mom, who was the quintessential homemaker. She baked bread and harvested veggies out of our massive backyard garden. Everything we ate was from scratch and made with so much love. My goal in life is to be half the superwoman she was. 

Decades later, my happy place is in my kitchen – organizing our weekly menu, finalizing the grocery list, and dominating the meal preparation.

Fun Facts About Sharon

Sharon Rhodes founder of the Honour System food blog.

I’m a huge bookworm, and before we moved to Vancouver, I owned over 500 books, all of which were donated.

A lifelong music lover, I used to play the flute, ukulele, and piano.

I hate tomatoes! Cooked in sauces, etc., is fine, but raw tomatoes? Forget it. It is very ironic as my mom LOVED tomatoes and was even in the Guinness Book of World Records for growing the most tomatoes on one plant.
