Meet Us!

Hi and welcome!

We’re Ally and Selim. We’re in our early 30s, just finished graduate school, and relocated back to Ally’s hometown of Richmond, VA. We both love to cook and decided to start this blog mostly so we wouldn’t forget all of the delicious recipes we’ve made. Prior to this, we would frequently bang our heads against the wall trying to remember the details to recreate delicious dishes we’d previously made. So think of this as your peek into our personal culinary diary. Ally loves to test out new recipes from all of our different cookbooks, her favorite food blogs, and Pinterest. Selim, on the other hand, is the master of combining ingredients on the fly and coming up with something tasty!

We are by no means “professional bloggers” or expert recipe developers. What you see here is whatever we’ve made that we think is worth remembering and sharing. This is our platform to try to share our culinary creations and take a halfway decent picture in our light-less kitchen. Thanks for visiting!
