Hey there, I’m Amber.
Welcome to my internet home! This is a space I’ve dedicated to recording recipes I’ve created, tweaked or that have been handed down within my family. I can’t promise everything is terribly healthy, but I can promise everything is wonderfully tasty!
I’m currently an ESL teacher. I live with my husband, Max, our two kids, a Siberian husky boy, two hairless cats, and two furry rescue cats. Oh, and a ball python that my kids talked me into getting. Yeah.
I love good wine (sparkling is my favorite), chocolate, and cheese fondue. My favorite meals are those that are easy, but taste (and look) like you spent all day in the kitchen. I’m a southern girl who’s traveled to (or lived in) many different countries with an appreciation for all kinds of food from a multitude of cultures and my family is comprised of people across the world. Because of this, you’ll find a variety of recipes on my blog – many inspired by family and friends.
I’ll be honest, I’m the kind of cook who rarely measures anything. I was brought up to ‘eyeball’ ingredients and measure to taste. This blog forces me to record measurements as I cook up scrumptious dishes so I can put them in recipe format, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. My hope is that this will be a place for family and friends to visit for recipes and ideas – if anyone else gets any enjoyment out of it, that’s even better!
