documenting recipes of real food and great ingredients

About Me

About Me


I am so excited you are here. My name is Melissa and I started this recipe website a few years ago to share recipes that I have been cooking for family and friends for years.

I love cooking with real food ingredients and love showing others that cooking with fresh food does not need to complicated or stressful. I live in Austin, Texas with my husband and two kids (both teens). When I am not cooking, I am focusing on my other love of being outdoors and gardening.

I love cooking global recipes and some classic American ones too. You will also finds lots of Italian inspired dishes since that is my background and what I grew up with.

Whether you are a foodie like me or a beginner, all of my recipes are easy and manageable. I hope you enjoy the recipes!
