About Me

Hi there! My name is Alaina….welcome to my kitchen! The recipes throughout this blog are dishes that I’ve been making for years. Some were made by accident, but turned out to be favorites for both my husband and I. I’m not a fan of overly complicated recipes, so this blog really speaks for itself…..simple & delish!

Simple & delish. That’s my motto for almost every meal I prepare. There’s nothing quite like cooking a meal for my loved ones and seeing their expressions (or listening to their sounds!) when they take the first bite. For me, it’s like Christmas morning.

Since I was old enough to reach in and explore my mother’s spice cabinet, I’ve always had a passion for culinary arts. My love of making elegant meals from simple ingredients is on display in every dish. I am mainly self-taught, having spent many an hour experimenting in the kitchen and breaking down recipes, but I’m also trained in French cuisine from the French Cooking Academy. If you love making your family and friends awesome meals that they talk about afterwards as much as I do, you’ve come to the right place. I hope you enjoy!
