Hello! My name is Julia, and I’m a 23-year-old, amateur cook who loves experimenting with any and all flavors. I fell in love with food around the same time my mom stopped packing my lunch. Free from the peanut butter and jelly rut, I began to experiment with different flavors, seasonings and more to create some of my favorite meals. Ten years and many bagged lunches later, I interned with a food publication and was immediately immersed in all that food has to offer. I started browsing through recipes in magazines and found that their ingredient lists didn’t always make things clear for the most amateur of chefs. That’s when I started this Simply Delicious Blog–a blog that features tasty recipes but doesn’t require anyone to have any true knowledge of the food world. Never be afraid to explore your kitchen. I believe there is a food niche out there for everyone; I want this blog to help discover it.
