Hello and welcome! My name is Melissa Erdelac, and I’m thrilled you stumbled upon our cooking community!
We like to keep things simple, streamlined and tasty around here. Sound good? I’ll give you the down and dirty below.
First: Why Am I Going to Love this Site?
It’s going to be make you feel like a badass in the kitchen.
Want to sit down to a richly, tasteful homemade meal, but not spend a lot to time or effort making it? It’s on!
Just so we are all on the up and up, I need to let you in on a little secret. All the recipes are actually gluten free, but hold up! No one, I mean no one, will realize they are sans gluten.
These recipes use everyday, grocery store ingredients to make good ol’ comfort food meals the whole family devours. No health nut food here. I like to tap into those midwestern roots and share recipes like your mom would make.
The only speciality ingredient I use is gluten free flour. The recipes are adapted for traditional or gluten free, unless it’s denoted to be specifically gluten free in the title.
Sound good? Let’s move on.
Next: Let’s Get to Know Each Other More.
I live with my super cute hubs and four (also super cute) kids in northern Indiana, close to Lake Michigan and Chicago. It’s Indiana’s best kept secret, so keep it on the downlow.
My husband, Ryan, and I are currently in a that bissfull stage of parenting where the kids actually want to be around us (perhaps too much). We take full advantage by requiring long family hikes, camping trips, and nightly dinners.
Then we offset all that family time with lots of date nights (because we are also at that blissful stage when they can stay home alone!)
If you really want to get all up in my bidness, go to my About Me page. Titillating stuff!
But what I really want to know is more about you! Like I said, this is a community. I respond to every recipe comment and question. My recipes are here for you, so unless we become friends, I don’t know what to create for you! Help me, help you.
I spend a fair (too much) time on Instagram, so you can always hit me up there. Follow me for the latest recipes, behind the scenes footage, and to get a peek into our day-to-day lives.
