Allow me to introduce myself… my name is Tanya. I’m a mom, wife, attorney, and now I will call myself a food blogger. I can be anything I want to be, right?
I reside in Charlotte, NC with my hubby and beautiful daughter. I love Charlotte and the food it provides in its many restaurants as well as the food in my kitchen.
I wish I could write a touching story about growing up in the kitchen and helping my mother create delicious family meals but that would be a lie. I avoided the kitchen the majority of my life…I just had no interest in home cooked meals. My love for food and recipe developing started in 2012 when I came across a book that taught me how to scramble eggs. I went from a person who cooked the eggs too long and made them taste like cardboard to a person who still cooks the eggs too long and they still taste like cardboard. (So, I haven’t mastered the scrambled egg thing yet). That one cook book purchase turned into a collection of 100+ cookbooks and an obsession to the many food blogs in existence. Now I find myself meal planning and finding new recipes in the little free time that I have.
I have learned a lot over the years. I decided to start this blog to share my knowledge, meals and yummy yums I create in the kitchen. I also get to use the fancy camera I purchased years ago and hardly used. That is a story for another day. Here is where I’ll share my recipes and adaptations of recipes I may stumble upon.If you are looking for extravagant recipes than this may not be the place to look. My focus in the kitchen is to create easy, delicious, and fancy meals.
Here’s what you will find on my page:
Easy recipes – Recipes that are not complicated to make. Life’s too short to spend all day making a complicated meal. Plus, I created this page for people like me who don’t have tons of experience in the kitchen.
Delicious recipes – All my recipes are delicious. Yea I said it. I won’t post a recipe with instructions unless my family and I love it. Ingredients cost money and they shouldn’t be wasted on gross food.
Fancy recipes – So you fancy huh? Why yes I am. Food shouldn’t be boring. Food should allow you to think outside of the box.
Confessions of a Food Blogger – I’m not perfect. I make mistakes and have a life outside of the kitchen. Stop by my confessions and learn about my mistakes and other life randoms.
Restaurant Reviews – I know…this is a cooking blog but I like to eat out and discover new restaurants too. Here you will get to hear all about my experiences trying new places to eat.
Here’s what you won’t find on my page
Recipe Trends – Now you may find vegetarian meals, vegan meals, paleo meals, gluten free meals on my page but it probably won’t be on purpose. I’m a firm believer in variety so if it taste good, I’ll eat it.
Feel free to try any of the recipes and adapt as you choose. Happy Cooking and Baking 🙂
P.S. If anyone has any tips on how to make the perfect scrambled egg, please share 🙂
