Hey, my name is Amy and welcome to my blog! I LOVE to cook and take pictures of food. I started this little food blog of mine in December 2011 and have so much enjoyed meeting so many awesome people along the way! I am self-taught in cooking and photography and enjoy learning something new every day.
My goal is to share simple, family-friendly recipes with everyday ingredients. I loathe hunting down exotic ingredients, so it’s pretty safe to say you won’t see any in my recipes.
I am by no means a culinary professional and don’t claim to be… I just love to cook, have a blast in the kitchen and learn from my mistakes. The recipes I feature are my own, family recipes, or adapted from magazines, cookbooks or other blogs.
I am a contributing writer for Parade Magazine’s CommunityTable.com, Our State Magazine’s Our State Eats Blog and SheKnows.com. I’m a pork recipe developer for the North Carolina Pork Council and blog from a TINY kitchen on the coast of North Carolina where I am proud to call my home.
My rescue senior boxer, “Baby” is pretty much always by my side in the kitchen and behind the camera. I adopted her in August 2015 and she has been my best friend ever since!
