A Note About My Recipes

Why I sometimes don’t post exact amounts of ingredients…

You may have noticed if you have looked at my recipes that I don’t often post exact amounts of ingredients. I have never liked exactly following recipes as I love allowing my creativity to flow in the kitchen. I want the same for you. Don’t be afraid to play around with ingredients – switch them out, cut them out altogether, add something else… these recipes are here to make your own so follow your heart (and taste buds!).

These would probably fall more under the category of “no recipe recipes.” For baking, I will post exact amounts as those are more important than in cooking.

Check out our simple marinara sauce for a great first recipe to try!

I really became interested in food and cooking when I was 11 or 12 after discovering Rachael Ray on the Food Network.

My dad was a baker his entire life but unfortunately that skill skipped my generation.
