Hi there and welcome!
I’m Kelly, the writer, photographer, cook, baker, and recipe developer behind this blog.
You will find recipes here with a little something for everyone but healthier Asian recipes and slow cooker dishes are the ones you’ll find I share most along with one pot / pan / skillet meals or anything that is quick, simple and full of flavor.
I recently published my first Slow Cooker Cookbook in November 2016 which was named one of the best cookbooks of 2016 by The Washington Post. You can find it at: Amazon, Barnes & Noble and all major bookstores as well as more details about what’s inside HERE:
I am a mom of two and married to my high school sweetheart.
I grew up with two foodie parents who both cooked freshly prepared meals almost every evening.
I am also a self-taught baker and got caught with the baking bug shortly after having my son in 2011. He is the reason why life was made sweeter and inspires many of my creations.
- I am a veggie lover at heart who is equally obsessed with berries, watermelon, pineapple and anything spicy
- I am always trying to sneak more veggies into my kids and meat-loving husband’s meals
- I swoon over anything with coconut, mango, lemon and avocado
- I stay active by practicing yoga & strength training regularly
Before having our kids, my husband and I lived in a large city with a diverse food culture. We also had a chance to travel to many places around the world in Asia, Europe, the Caribbean and across North America so you will see many recipes that have been inspired by the places we have visited.
You can browse around my recipe index with photos HERE for a better idea of the dishes I share.
Here are some reader favorites:
These days, you can usually find me making a mess in the kitchen with my two small kiddos while dreaming up new and exciting recipes.
