This is my little brother (my inspiration for starting this blog) and Nana (one of my biggest cooking influences).
This picture is from last summer, at my brother’s college convocation. He now works at a really fancy restaurant in town. I’m so proud of him!
I’ve spent a lot of time with Nana learning how to cook. She’s taught me so many things and even taught me a few recipes handed-down from my great-grandmother. You know, the kind that you have to learn by practicing because a recipe never seems to work. She’s taught me a lot about eating healthy on a budget (the theme of this blog!).
