About Me

I’m Jess(ica). I love to cook. It’s one of the only things that I could do every single day for the rest of my life and never have to get paid. It makes me happy. It relaxes me. It’s just the best. I read cookbooks like they’re the latest Harry Potter novel and collect ‘em by the stacks. Given the choice of what to watch on tv, there’s a 99% chance it will be something on The Food Network or Cooking Channel. Pinterest? Yeah, it’s really just an excuse for me to dig up new recipes and stare at pictures of food porn. A week without cooking something (anything at all) is a crummy week.

This blog is my way of sharing what I love to do for free with all of you, and maybe even helping some of you get better at this incredibly awesome sport of cooking. With enough practice, work and dedication, anyone can do it.  You, me, all of us: we’re all Cook-letes or Cook-letes in the making.

So, get off the bench and let’s get in the game!

  1. I wanted to say how much I enjoyed browsing through your blog! You have so many great recipes, things I would make in my own kitchen! Cool that you live in Michigan, spent 3 years there and have so many great memories of that time!

  2. Hi Jess! Thanks for stopping by to visit 🙂 Turns out we both live in Michigan- it’s a small world! I just moved to Ann Arbor with my fiance last August so I’m still a newbie. I’m loving some of the savory chicken dishes on your blog. Makes me hungry for dinner all over again!

    • Wow, really? My aunt lives in Ann Arbor near U of M campus, and I love to go and visit her…VERY small world! lol

      Thanks for the compliment, I love cooking and blogging and am excited to see where it takes me.

    • Hi, THANK YOU! I really try my best to make it a fun place to visit, so that compliment really means a lot to me. I checked out your blog too and it’s pretty amazing. I look forward to seeing more of your posts 🙂

    • Chantal, THANK YOU for the nomination. I have already been nominated for the Liebster Award and did a post for it earlier here– I REALLY appreciate your thinking of me though 🙂

  4. Greetings from Singapore! I really love the name of your blog 🙂 Everything you said about cooking in the section above is a lot like how I feel about cooking too – I love to cook and I do it everyday and if I’m not, you’ll find me watching food network or searching for inspiration on what to cook next 🙂 It was nice to come across your blog.

    • Hello from Michigan, USA lol! I’ve always wanted to go to Singapore, if nothing else for the marvelous food culture I’ve read about there. There’s not much to be had in my town, besides the major franchises (which isn’t really saying much). I checked out your blog and love what I see as well, so I can’t wait to see what more you have to share. Thanks for stopping by 🙂


      • I’ll definitely be posting some recipes of local favourites so you can enjoy the flavours of Singapore right in your own kitchen 🙂 but of course, you should plan a trip here when you can. I promise the food scene is very worth it. Cheers & happy cooking! 🙂

  5. Hi Jess, Thank you so much for recently stopping by my blog. I love your “about” page. Cooking is my sport, too! I’m so glad to know that it is a sport since I’m not very good at any other ones!:) I totally understand about reading cookbooks like they were a novel. It’s very nice to meet you, and I look forward to seeing more of your posts!

    • You’re welcome Shari- thank you for taking the time to stop by. And yeah, I’ve never been good at pretty much any sport but cooking. At all lol I look forward to more of your posts too!

  10. Dear friend, I have nominated you for a Sunshine Blogger Award. Here is the link https://koolkosherkitchen.wordpress.com/2016/12/06/three-awards-and-a-thai-style-chicken/. You are not in any way obligated to accept, and I fully understand that not everyone has the time and inclination to participate in these self-and-others-promoting exercises. Therefore, I will truly appreciate if you accept the nomination, as I sincerely think you deserve it, but I won’t get offended if you don’t. Nominating each one of you is my way of giving credit to some exceptional bloggers and perhaps attracting attention to your work.

  11. Thank you for your blog…Just want to wish you the best in upcoming year of 2017, and Happy Holidays. Great success in your work….
