About Me

Welcome to my blog! I’m Mary Ellen, a 41 year old full-time wife, mom, and part-time professional who loves to cook, create, feed my family and friends, and share my creations and passion for food with others through this blog.

I was born and raised in Philadelphia and currently live about an hour north. I love living in PA mostly for the change of seasons and how that influences my cooking.

I discovered my love of food about 10 years ago, and since then have had so much fun branching out, trying new recipes, and creating my own. My husband tries everything I make, and is the most honest critic I have. The best part is that he loves getting into the kitchen with me when he has the time, and I’ve got to say that I love a man who knows his way around the kitchen. Actually, some of the recipes in this blog are his creations.

My food ranges from quick and easy meals and comfort food, to more elaborate, time consuming, and sophisticated dishes. I’m not much of a baker as I will choose savory over sweet any day, but for the sake of my five and a half year old daughter I have been trying my hand at a few sweet treats. The best part is that she loves to help me.

I started this blog to document my creations and experiences in the kitchen, and it makes me happy that there are people like you who read what I share. I love talking to other foodies, so please feel free to comment and share your thoughts and ideas with me.

Thanks for stopping by!
