Hi there! My name is Melissa and I’m a  home cook, wine enthusiast, and writer. In November 2016, I started an Instagram account in the hopes of getting people excited about dining in. When it comes to home cooking, I believe simple is better. I have no idea where this culinary journey will lead me and hope no one at home grows tired of my constant recipe testing in our tiny kitchen, but I’m excited to launch this food project!

When I’m not cooking or entertaining, I enjoy traveling, writing, and spending time with family and friends. I currently reside in Westchester with my awesome family. I eat a piece of dark chocolate every morning and listen to the Cherry Bombe podcast religiously.
