When I was a kid, I’d always watch my mom cook and think, “I’m so confused.” When I grew up, I’d watch her cook and think, “I’m still so confused.”
It wasn’t until my mid-twenties that I finally started cooking real food, rather than just boxed mac & cheese. I had started dating my now husband, Greyson, and I got tired of making us frozen dinners. It was time I finally learned how to use an oven and chop an onion.
Being a beginner cook is not easy. I’ll never forget the times Greyson consoled me for spilled pasta, burnt garlic bread, and overcooked chicken. As time went by, I slowly got the hang of it, and I’m here to tell you that if I can do it, you can too!
It’s been four years since I started making meals that weren’t boxed or frozen, and somehow… I started getting better! People began asking me for recipes and cooking advice, which is one of the reasons I started this blog: to have somewhere to keep my favorite recipes and share cooking tips.
More importantly, I made this blog to give confidence to beginner home cooks who are just trying to put dinner on the table.
I’m a proud Armenian and was raised in Los Angeles, California, where my mom and grandma cooked Armenian food constantly. Some of those recipes will definitely be sneaking their way on here soon.
Greyson and I met while we were both hosts on a popular Harry Potter podcast, Hogwarts Radio. Yes, we are huge HP dorks and that’s what brought us together! We magically (get it?) fell in love, and got married in September 2013.
We lived in Colorado Springs for two years, and now live in Los Angeles, where I work as a sign language interpreter and now a food blogger. We share our home with our two dogs: Patch, our energetic and playful corgi puppy, and Anubis, our sweet mutt.
Thanks for reading… and don’t forget:
If I can do it – so can you!
