Andrea

Guest-Chef

My name is Andrea, and I am excited that you are here. I have a passion for cooking and baking that I want to share with you. I enjoy spending moments in the kitchen creating beautiful, easy, and nutritious recipes for my friends and family. There is nothing better than sharing a meal with the ones you love! I believe life is all about the small moments that happen on a daily basis. The grand exciting moments in our lives are special, such as weddings, births, graduations, etc. But don’t the small things that happen in our lives every day really say something about who we are and who we want to be? The small interactions with the grocer, cooking a meal for your family, these are the things that make up our lives. I did join Cookinary because I am obsessed with the small moments I have in my kitchen while I cook and bake for my friends and family. Making a cake for someone’s birthday and seeing their surprise, baking muffins for a new neighbor and seeing their gratitude, cooking my husband’s favorite meal and seeing his joy…these are the moments I live for. I hope you enjoy browsing through my collection of recipes! Thank you for stopping by my corner of the internet. Hope to talk with you soon!
