About Me

My name is Christine. I am wife to the wittiest, most handsome man I know, and mama to a spirited toddler boy and sweet baby girl. I am an optometrist by day, and an aspiring recipe developer and food photographer by nap and bedtime.

I love food. I love to eat it, and I love how it brings people together. My goal with this website is to provide you with recipes that you can trust. Obviously we all have different tastes, but I promise you that the only recipes posted are ones that I am proud to serve to my family and friends (pictured below: tiny hands eating my food). So with that said, if you have feedback on a recipe, have a question, run into a problem, please contact me!

Korean Beef Bowl. Tender, spicy beef in a delicious sauce served over vegetables and rice. 

I like good food. I want to be full after a meal and I also don’t want to feel like I’m destroying my body. So, my meals are typically on the healthier side, but I do not stick to any one diet or philosophy….. My desserts though, that’s a different story …. if I’m going to eat dessert, I want it done right. Those are rarely, if ever, on the healthy side.

I grew up in North and South Carolina (Clemson girl!), went to graduate school in Boston, and then moved to Maryland. Therefore my food tends to be a combination of southern comfort with some city spice.

I have no formal training in baking or cooking. My culinary education has come from blogs, you tube videos, cookbooks, and a DVD course my mom bought me.

I once had to have stitches on my finger after leveling a cake with a serrated knife. I am since a strong proponent of commercial cake levelers.

I firmly believe that there are few ailments in life which cannot be eased with a little dessert.

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cake. Chocolate cake with a cherry ganache filling, frosted with fresh cherry buttercream, topped with chocolate ganache and chocolate covered cherries.
