We love to cook and try new foods. Our passion and dedication for developing new recipe ideas have become more than just a day to day cooking activity. Therefore we have decided to start the food blog and share our passion for cooking with others. Also to document our family’s rich cooking tradition, and pass it along to our children.
About Arela and Marcin
We are happily married a couple that enjoys cooking and sharing what we do with others through this family food blog. We treat this as our creative outlet and a colossal hobby that makes us happy.
Arela received her master’s degree in social work from a collaborative program through Brockport and Nazareth College in Rochester, NY. She is a passionate chef inspired by southern and Italian cuisine. She’s also on a healthy kick nowadays, so she preps and develops a ton of unique healthy choices for an average day. She’s a stay-at-home mom to two beautiful children, Aiden 9 and Miesha 7 that are always hungry and demanding food.
Marcin, on the other hand, grew up in Poland where he studied computer science in Math and Banking. Moved to the US in his 20’s and traveled through around the globe and grew his passion for worldly cuisine and different flavors of food. He loves to cook just about anything. From BBQ to vegetarian or vegan foods you name it, and he will cook it. Some of his favorite foods include BBQ, all kinds of potato dishes, Sushi, and many many others. He is also a true-hearted gardener and believes that vegetables from your garden always taste better! 🙂 . He is in charge of web development and all technical details behind this blog. He loves to learn and explore new things to push the blog to the new level. He is taking all the photos for this blog and continuously learning on how to improve his food photography skills.
Our recipes were featured on The Guardian, Yahoo!life, Buzzfeed, Brit.co, FoodGawker. We are a proud member of FoodBlogger.com community. We continuously improve our cooking skills and search for new recipe ideas. We love to travel and explore new places.

We often get asked about about our food photography and which specific equipment we use to take food pictures. I always invite everyone to visit our page with photography tools and other resources we recommend.
