My name is Carissa Alice and I am in love with all things related to food and nutrition. I also happen to have the biggest sweet tooth.
I am not a chef—I never went to culinary school. Instead, I taught myself through trial and error, reading every cookbook and cooking blog I could find.
People ask what my specialty is; other than Cowboy hot pot, which has turned into a family favorite, I don’t really have a special dish because I try something new every time I step into the kitchen to continue learning and teaching myself.
I’ll tell you a little secret. I used to think I hated cooking. I was intimidated by strange ingredients I had never heard of and complicated techniques. But my goal for this blog is to demonstrate how easy it is to cook without slaving in the kitchen for hours. Better yet, I will show you how you can do all this while staying on a budget!
I love when people try my recipes and provide feedback. I hope I can inspire you to enter Cookingland!
