Welcome to No Crying in Cooking. I’m glad you dropped by.
A little bit about me. I’m an ex-professional ballet dancer turned writer. After I hung up those pointe shoes (well, maybe it was more of a light them on fire situation), I left my beloved Texas and moved out to Los Angeles to pursue my major passion/obsession–great storytelling.
A close second for me, however, has always been food. I LOVE food. I love eating food. I love cooking food. I love watching animated movies about rats cooking and loving food. Food to me has always meant comfort, love, and home, and I truly believe there is nothing more powerful than a great meal around a chatty table to bring people together.
So, what will you find here? Like the great Brad Paisley song… a little bit of everything. When it comes to food, you’ll find healthy food that actually tastes indulgent, quick and easy weeknight recipes for when you just can’t even, and my favorite, wonderful, glorious comfort food. What you won’t find here, however, are complicated recipes that will leave you in tears, gasping through crying snot bubbles, “they said it would be simple.” I gave that sh*it up a long time ago. These recipes are one hundred perfect snot bubble proof.
Writing wise, again you’ll find a little bit of everything. Narratives centered on favorite moments with food, friends, and family, fun travel adventures, and hell even maybe a random Bachelor recap! (Do you like the Bachelor? PLEASE say you do).
No Crying In Cooking is basically just a great big dinner table, where we can share stories, swap recipes, and trade binge-worthy TV shows. So pull up a chair. Dinner is served. Well… almost….it looks like the chicken needs a few more minutes. Can someone grab the parm? Wait, what’s that burning smell?
