Welcome to my blog! My name is Melissa. I’m a young-at-heart 40-something, born and raised in Northern NJ, right outside of NYC. I have a beautiful daughter who was born in 2008, who is the light of my life.
My love for the kitchen started when I was a little girl…I’ve always been surrounded by lots of inspiration. It’s how I learned just about everything I know when it comes to cooking. There’s no better way, if you ask me. I’m very proud of my heritage and our traditions, and plan on letting all of you in to see what they’re about.
I’ll be the first to admit that organization is not one of my finest attributes, so another big motivator for starting this blog was to keep all of my recipes in one place. I also like to talk, so to all of you out there listening…thanks! And don’t hide – please comment every once in a while!
Please contact me if you have any questions, thoughts, or ideas regarding my blog, recipes, etc. – melissac22 at gmail dot com. I’d love to hear from you!
I hope you enjoy my food, recipes, stories and everything else I share. Hopefully you’ll feel like a part of my wonderful, crazy family in no time 🙂
