Hi, my name is Jess Smith, and I love cooking in my spare time. Around three years ago, I decided to give up my day job as a teacher to pursue my passion for food. While I have enjoyed sharing tips and tricks on Social Media, I have decided to expand my horizons through this blog. 

When it comes to cooking, it can be daunting for some people, especially if you are just beginning your cooking journey. Even simple things such as how long it takes chicken to cook, or how to defrost food can be confusing if you have never done this before. However, it is important to ensure you are carrying out the correct practices, especially when it comes to handling raw meat.

Through this blog I hope to help others learn the basics and more intricate details of cooking. I know from personal experience how frustrating it can be to cook a meal, only to realize you are missing one ingredient from your list. This is why I love to write articles chatting readers through some great substitutes that can be used in an emergency.

I hope you will find this blog useful, and that it will help you to develop your culinary skills, to help you cook up a storm!
