Hey everyone! Welcome to my little foodie haven on the great big web! I hope you enjoy what you see and are inspired to cook up some great eats for your family. My love of food started as a child. I grew up in a Portuguese household and my mom always made homemade comfort meals. I would watch her closely as she peeled potatoes, chopped, cooked, fried, and broiled her way through meal time prep.
I learned so much from my mom and started really cooking at age 16. Watching food shows like Chopped and Rachel Ray really ignited my interest in sharing family recipes that any level chef can create. While I am not formally trained, I do enjoy cooking, and baking for my family of 5. My genuine love for food is what led me to this New England area food blog.
