Hello all, my name is Alicia. Cooking has always been a huge part of my life. My Grandma started teaching me at a very young age. I watched her make everything from scratch. Pasta, sauce and meatballs on Sunday afternoon was a staple in my house. I thoroughly enjoy cooking and making up new recipes. Trying a healthy twist on a classic meal or using new gadgets like the Instant Pot to speed up cooking times.
My wife, Alexa, and I have been in North Carolina for about 2.5 years now. We have had a whirlwind of a year- 2 cancelled weddings, 1 micro beach wedding, bought a house, and had 3 job changes, amidst a pandemic. Meals together has been a lovely constant for us. We also have two mini dachshunds- LJ and Maxwell, who are very content sleeping most of the day and sun-bathing on the deck when it’s warm out.
Hope you all enjoy my recipes, some with stories and some without. I’ve seen quite a few posts stating ‘just get to the recipe already’. Happy to oblige to those who just want the recipe and not the story.
