Welcome to Keeping It Simple Blog!
Hi! 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. This site actually started as a place where I was documenting recipes for family members but began to grow from there.
If you are new here, I love writing easy recipes that everyone can cook, no special skills required. If you are not sure what to try first, my Italian Baked Zucchini and Coconut Curry Ramen Soup have been made over and over again by readers on Pinterest and they love it! Some favorite desserts by readers are my Pizzelles and Italian Bread pudding if that is what you are craving.
About the Author:
My cooking style is cooking with real food ingredients and I 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 cook 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.
Much of my food inspiration comes from friends and family over the years and lots of my inspiration comes from traveling around the country and the World. I love learning new, easy recipes from different cultures and sharing those here with you.
Whether you are a foodie like me or a beginner, all of my recipes are easy and manageable. I hope you enjoy the recipes!
