Hi my name is Emely!

I am a nurse who went to cooking school and never stopped cooking. My philosophy on health is to cook adventurously. Do not be afraid to try new foods, spices, or techniques..

If I were a food, I would be a dark leafy green!

Not only would I be nutritious with boundless benefits, but I would also have a story or two to tell. Like the life stories, that a palm reader tells from examining the lines on a stranger’s hand, the lines intricately splayed on my leaves, will tell you stories leading your curiosity to explore more and more recipes.

Since there are days where the clock hand spins at racing speeds, you can always choose to skip straight to the recipes and find quick and easy meals. Being a mother of four and now a first time grandmother, I know that time is not always on our side and can be unfriendly when we just want to get dinner on the table. No worries, I will share with you my prepping tips and kitchen shortcuts to help silence the hangry crowds.

On a more personal note… Why Live Spicy and Cook?

It comes down to time.  We all have an expiration date, when we will no longer have the zest that brightens our dish of life.  I lost a close friend, who was not a spicy food eater, but had enough sugar & spice, to flavor the hundreds of lives she came in contact with on a daily basis.  Her memory inspires me to live every day seasoned exotically, with steamy aromas that fill others with a desire for a better life.

For me this means sharing my cooking and writing goals, challenges, journeys, successes, and my inspirations. I want my adventures in my kitchen to be experienced by others who may be looking for a little escape from their routine dishes.  I am excited for this new food escapade and mostly intrigued to hear from others as they pop into my food world. 

Cheers to Happy Food Adventures!
