My ideas for cooking come from all over, and I’m inspired by family, professionals, and the things I see around me. I obsessively collect cookbooks, and talk about Ina Garten at least once a day, so a lot of what I make at first is adapted from what I find elsewhere, but that’s okay because this is a learning journey for all of us! Any recipes that I post about can be found here, happy cooking!
