Hi, I’m Melissah! (yes, with an “h”)
I’m a 22-year-old new grad that has just moved to Chicago for my first job. I started this blog during my junior year of college, and have been cooking and baking ever since. When I’m not working (I work for a start-up that makes a data crawling software) or cooking, I like working out, shopping, watching movies and exploring my new city!
My main passion really is food, which includes eating, cooking, baking, reviewing and recipe hunting! I come from a family of food lovers, actually– my dad has a degree in the culinary arts (french) and my mom has a collection of recipes that is at least a couple thousand deep. The only person in my family that doesn’t appreciate the difference between a McDonald’s big mac and a medium-rare kobe beef burger is my ten-year old brother, John… which just serves as further proof that my parents took the wrong kid home from the hospital. Just kidding.
Anyway, I take my pictures with a Nikon D70s and use a 50 mm lens (it’s the best, budget-friendly lens I’ve found so far. Do message me with other suggestions if you have them though!). I am in no way shape or form an expert with photography, but I am excited to learn more about the art of a great food photo. I hope you like my recipes, happy cooking, eating and baking!
